ZZ Plant Zamioculcas Zamiifolia 3.5 inch
The Zamioculcas zamiifolia, or ZZ Plant, is a tropical perennial native to Eastern Africa. It has become popular worldwide in recent years due to its tolerance of a wide range of conditions—a highly dependable houseplant, it can tolerate low light and has low water requirements. Such an easy plant that is a must-have plant for any plant lover.
Water your ZZ Plant every 2-3 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. Signs that it is thirsty include wilting, wrinkled leaves, and dry potting mix, while wet mix or yellowing and mushy leaves signal overwatering and root rot.
Though it can tolerate lower indirect light, the ZZ thrives in medium to bright indirect light. It will be happy with a minimum of six hours per day and can tolerate up to 12 during the warmer months. It is important, however, to keep it away from intense, direct sun—for instance, by moving it towards the center of the room or placing a sheer curtain or drape over south-facing windows.
