The ZZ plant, officially named zamioculcas zamiifolia, is native to East Africa but thrives anywhere.

A beautiful plant with dark green, shiny foliage, it grows to more than a foot tall, even indoors. “It doesn’t need much water because it’s got this succulent bulb the stem grows out of,” adds Mattson…

Alocasia amazonica.Avoid cold drafts, if the plant is ever chilled or dries out, it will immediately drop its leaves and go dormant. If you correct the problem, it will grow out new leaves.When repotting, if needed in the spring, divide the plant's rhizome or tuber.Avoid too much moisture as it can cause crown rot, and low humidity causes leaf dieback.60 to 75° F (15.5 to 24° C) high humidity (above 65%). To achieve this, a pebble tray filled with water works well.

Spanish lavender (Lavandula stoechas) is characterized by its intriguing pinecone shaped flowers topped with ‘rabbit ears’. It typically grows low and wide and is one of the earliest to bloom.
