Caring for your ZZ Plant

  • The ZZ will tolerate low light but will grow a bit faster in brighter indirect light. It does not like direct sun.
  • Let the potting mix completely dry out between waterings- the rhizomes under the potting mix store water. ZZ does not like to get overwatered. It will grow a bit faster if it is not deprived of water for too many weeks, though.
  • Remove any excess water from the saucer after watering.
  • Fertilize once in spring and once during the summer with an all-purpose organic indoor fertilizer or use a liquid fertilizer when you water spring through summer.
  • Not pet safe
