I was told this is called a Zi Zi or Zizi plant - a tropical that can grow to 20'. It has bulbous roots. That's all I know, just a pretty green shiny leafed plant. Anybody know anything more about it?

This one came from Home Depot, a very full pot which my DIL bought and divided with me. She lucked up and got it on sale for $2.00! Had no tag, so don't know any proper name for it.

Evert - I'm sure you got it. It looks exactly like the plant you posted Zamiifolia. too bad no info with it. No sign of the woody stems of the Ziziphus. It has a soft tuber that can easily be cut or broken, no roots like a tree. I wonder if DH will mind if I knock a hole in the living room ceiling?? Thanks all.

It definitely isn't Ziziphus jujuba. Zamioculas needs a moist soil I think.. we call it here vahasaniainen - Wax Fern...

I have a Jujube tree (Zizyphus jujuba) and it sprouts new trees from the roots, but the leaves are shiny and leaf placement on the babies is very different from yours. Not bulbous or tuberous where the roots are concerened, either. It does make a neat little fruit.
