How to Grow

The ZZ Plant is wonderfully versatile, capable of thriving in a range of light conditions, from low light to bright indirect sunlight. While it prefers well-draining potting soil, its drought-tolerant nature is attributed to its tuberous roots that store water. Although it's best suited for USDA zones 9-11, its typical home is indoors, sheltered from extreme weather conditions.

Care Tips

Water the ZZ Plant sparingly. Let the soil dry out completely between waterings, as over-watering can lead to root rot. The plant's leaves can be wiped with a soft, damp cloth to remove dust and maintain their shine.


With its upright growth habit and lustrous foliage, the ZZ Plant is a natural choice for modern and traditional interiors alike. Whether placed on a desk, a shelf, or standing tall on the floor, it adds a refreshing green touch to any space. Moreover, its air-purifying qualities further enhance indoor environments.

Planting Tips

When potting, opt for a container with drainage holes to prevent excessive moisture buildup. Use a standard potting mix, ensuring the tuberous roots are well-covered but not too deep. Over time, as the plant grows, it may produce bulbous growths at the base; these can be left alone or divided for propagation.


The ZZ Plant is notably low-maintenance. Periodic inspections for yellow or damaged leaves will keep it looking its best. If the plant becomes too dense or if you notice small bulbs forming at the base, you can consider repotting or division.
