What is this plant?

Asked by wildpotato (12766 points ) May 2nd, 2013

Here’s a photo. It’s a succulent of some sort. You can’t see it very well in the picture, but it’s got one of those brown knobbly large growths that juts just above the soil and all the fronds sprout out of that.

I just want to find out if it likes full sun and how it tolerates cold, to see if it would enjoy being outside for the summer.

I’m pretty sure that is a very unhappy ZZ plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia).

If it is indeed a zz plant, it likes moderate/diffuse to low light, warm temperatures, and sparse watering.

@syz I love that it’s called a zz plant. Maybe it is sleepy and needs a nap?

Thank you, @syz; that’s it. I have kept it indoors and followed care suggestions, and it’s doing much better.

It looks like it could be a bay tree
