If you’re looking for a hands-off plant that makes a statement, the ZZ Plant, a native of East Africa, is the plant for you! This plant thrives on neglect and is a great choice for busy folks, travelers, and those who occasionally forget to water or for an office location. Indirect bright light is best for a ZZ, but they are also content in low light and indirect light, making it a versatile and near foolproof indoor plant.
The ZZ Plant is one the easiest plants out there to care for, it loves nice dry roots and a good drink every 2-3 weeks depending on the time of year and the dryness of the air. While it's not advised to leave it in a window, it can tolerate a few hours of sun during the day while it shoots out bright green fractals of its older foliage.
Medium to low indirect light, avoid windows as they amplify the sun's intensity and create heat that may damage plant.
Water thoroughly every 2-3 weeks. We recommend adding clay drainage balls to the bottom of the pot, however, avoid overwatering.
ZZ's are not only one of the easiest houseplants to keep alive, but one of the most beneficial for your health too. They've been scientifically found to remove several volatile organic compounds from the air, so breathe easy!
The ZZ plant is slightly toxic to humans and animals if ingested.
Basic Plant Care
Recommend transplanting within 2-3 years into a vessel 1-2 inches larger using regular potting mix. Clean leaves with damp paper towel every 1-2 weeks to aid photosynthesis and stimulate growth. Check leaves and stalks for pests while cleaning.
