ZZ Plant Care Guide

ZZ Plant Zanzibar, Kenya, Eastern Africa
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun.
Water every 2-3 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
Fun Fact
You might spot large potato-like rhizomes under the surface of the ZZ Plant's soil. These store water to help the plant survive drought in its native habitat.
