The Zamioculcas (ZZ plant) originates from Zanzibar, Kenya and Madagascar. It is a popular houseplant and that is not only because it is so easy. The Zamioculcas has beautiful shiny leaves. And this sheet forms zig in the well-known zigzag shape.

Optional: plant rooting powder
Step-by-step plan for the propagation of a Zamioculcas (ZZ plant)
First, disinfect the scissors with pure alcohol or disinfectant.
You can propagate a Zamioculcas very easily. With the scissors you can cut a cutting with at least two leaves.
Then apply some rooting powder to the wound of the cutting and mother plant. Then let the rooting powder dry well.
Don’t you have any rooting powder? That is not a problem, but rooting powder can ensure that root growth is stimulated.
You can root a Zamioculcas cutting in two ways: in water and in soil.
Propagating in water: Remove the bottom leaf of the cutting. Then place the cutting in a vase with water. Make sure to change the water at least once a week. Once the roots are about 5 to 10 centimeters long in water, you can repot them.
Propagating in soil: Put the cutting directly into a flower pot with fresh soil. Give a small amount of water and then place a plastic sandwich bag over the cutting and the flower pot. Keep the soil moist by spraying every week with a plant sprayer. After one month, enough roots have developed and you can remove the plastic bag.
Whichever method you choose, it does not really matter for the Zamioculcas cutting.
