ZZ Plant

Plant Care Instructions*

Plant Care*:

Temperature
Average warmth is fine of approximately 60-75°F (15-24°C) and no lower than 45°F (8°C).

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.

Soil
Most well-draining potting mixes will suffice that contains a high amount of perlite or sand within the mix (you can add more perlite or sand if needed to a mix that is bought). Good drainage holes at the bottom of the pot is essential.

Fertilizer
During the main growing season (April - August) feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer which is diluted, once a month.

Re-Potting
I would re-pot the ZZ plant once a year at the beginning of spring, especially during the first 3 - 5 years - whilst it's growing up.

Humidity
Average house humidity is advised but increase humidity if the artificial heating within the home or workplace is quite dry.

* Standard care recommendations - you may need to adjust based on your home or office environment.
