Zamioculcas zamiifolia (more commonly known as the ZZ plant) is one of the most hardy plants around and perfect for any brown thumb or new plant parent. Its nickname, “ZZ plant” derives from the first letters of its name. They can tolerate a range of growing conditions and can survive even after weeks of neglect. ZZ plants can grow as tall as five feet, but normally reach between two to three feet. You really have to try if you want to kill your ZZ plant! In other words, it’s very durable. But even though a ZZ plant can endure a lot of neglect, it’s best to give it proper care if you want it to grow. Read on to find out how.
Light: Bright light is good but not essential. The zamioculcas zamiifolia grows fine with low levels of light, but it’s best to avoid direct sunlight.
Watering: Allow the soil to become dry at the top to the touch between watering and do not over water. It’s best to water this plant less than too much because over-watering can cause stem and rhizome rot.
Fertilizer: In spring and summer, when the plants are actively growing, it’s a good idea to feed them once a month with a product such as Jack Houseplant Special
Additional Care: Poisonous: All parts of this plant are said to be toxic if ingested by children, cats and dogs.
