Horticulturists Unite!

Unite and help me :-)

I have this plant in my office. It's quite the crazy plant. I call it Audrey II (name that movie) but would like to know what it actually is.


It is slowly taking over the office. I have cut it back so many times and it just keeps getting bigger.

These are the two unfortunate limbs that i lopped off today:

Any ideas? Help! I must know what it is before it eats me and destroys the office... Crud i just saw it move. Gotta go.

Does it have an aroma? It looks a bit like a laurel, but it would have a scent like a bay leaf.

I've never noticed a smell...would it smell all the time or just when you break a leaf?

A big gold star for Alison!!! That is such a great movie.

My mother has informed me that it is a Zamioculcas zamiifolia plant, also know as a ZZ Plant. Thank you mom!

I'm impressed with your mom! I don't grow ANYTHING. It dies if I touch it. So, my hat is off to you!!

I hope you don't mind me talking through a blog, but I didn't have your number. Anyhow this is Becca Bowers (Newton). I was wondering if you were up for a blind date with my husband’s brother. I don’t know if you remember him from Rachel’s and Doug’s goodbye party, but if you’re up for it let me know. My e-mail address is becca_bowers@hotmail.com And your plant is very beautiful!

Katie, you have to call her/email Becca! And yes, the plant is fun. She is pretty good at checking email, so do it! It'll be fun and you can double! She can send you pictures if you don't remember him . . .

I just got a ZZ plant too! We also joked about it singing and trying to eat us. It's a monster! Enjoy!
