  • Watering – Infrequent watering. Approximately every 2-3 weeks in summer & every 3-4 weeks in winter. Adjust accordingly for your conditions. These plants grow from thick, round tuberous rhizomes which store water as do the thick, fleshy roots & somewhat spongy stems. Therefore, it’s important that you don’t overwater a ZZ Plant.
  • Lighting – Medium light is the key for this plant to look its best. They can tolerate low light plant but that will result in little new growth & somewhat stretchy stems. If you have a room with moderate to high light, keep your ZZ at least 10′ away from any windows.
