SHOP THIS PLANT
Placement

Placement

The ZZ Plant is one of the easiest plants to care for. She will do well in just about any room. Place her next to a bright sunny window or even in a dimly lit office where she'll only receive small amounts of fluorescent light. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.

Light Requirements

Light Requirements

The ZZ will thrive in bright to moderate, indirect light but will be perfectly fine in extremely low levels of light as well.

Watering Needs

Watering Needs

Water the plant only when the soil has completely dried out. Water moderately but infrequently. Water the plant lightly and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots. In the case of the ZZ plant, it is better to opt for a reduced watering regime. Reduce watering during the cold season. About every other watering, aerate the soil for even water distribution. Loosen the soil by gently poking a few holes using a chopstick or similar blunt stick – then water as usual.

Temperature Preferences

Repotting Needs

Repotting Needs

The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to a year. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have filled the bottom of the pot. Irrigate the pot in order to loosen the soil before transplanting. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
