The 'Raven' ZZ Plant Looks Like Something Jack Skellington Would Own

Usually when we think of houseplants, we picture orangey clay terracotta pots filled with a gradient of green hues. However, there are actually quite a few plants that like to live on the dark side.

The 'Raven' ZZ plant is one of them.

If you ever see this plant at a nursery or store, there's no way you won't do a double take.

It's called a zamioculcas zamiifolia, but most plant lovers know it as the 'Raven' ZZ plant.

Like a raven, the plant is a shiny black color with tapering leaves that mimic the silhouette of the bird.

They make a major statement in your home, that's for sure.

Native to Africa, these plants appreciate dry and humid environments, so they're perfect for people who famously underwater their plants.

They also love low to medium light, so consider them the vampires of houseplants.

New leaves grow a vibrant green, but there's no need to be alarmed. They'll grow back into their usual goth self eventually.

These plants are definitely Jack Skellington-approved!
