Allow the soil to dry out partially between waterings, as ZZ Plants are sensitive to overwatering. Water sparingly, ensuring that excess water can drain freely from the pot to prevent root rot. During the dormant winter months, reduce watering frequency.


Feed ZZ Plants with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-3 months during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to excessive foliage growth with reduced overall plant health.


ZZ Plants are adaptable to average indoor humidity levels but appreciate occasional misting to increase humidity around the foliage. However, they can tolerate drier air conditions common in most indoor environments.

Light Requirements

Light: ZZ Plants can adapt to low-light conditions, but they prefer bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves. They can thrive in areas with minimal natural light, such as offices or rooms with north-facing windows.
