ZZ Plant- Zamioculcas zamifolia

ZZ plant (Zamioculcas zamifolia) is a beautiful leafy plant with interesting thick, glossy green leaves. While the ZZ plant can be grown outdoors, it makes a fantastic almost un-killable indoor plant. It’s been described as the ultimate indoor plant because of its tolerance to low light and lack of water.

General Care

Sunlight

Thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Can tolerate lower indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.

Water

Water every 2-3 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between watering. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

Humidity

Warm, frost free areas or grow indoors.

Soil

Common Problems

As an easy-going plant it’s generally pest-free. When a plant becomes crowded in the pot it can be split and divided. Gently remove from pot and loosen soil to reveal roots. You'll see they're divided into clumps, which can be easily separated into sections using a sharp knife. Regular wipe-downs leaves of the plant.
