ZZ plants are tolerant of a wide range of lighting conditions, which makes them well-suited to indoor growing. The plants grow well in low light conditions but prefer bright, indirect light. The plants can quickly become leggy when not given enough light, however. Avoid direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves of a your plants.


ZZ plants are not overly picky about their potting medium as long as it is well-draining. Most standard potting mixes should be sufficient for your plant. If additional drainage is required, mixing in perlite or sand will help.


Thanks to their thick rhizomes, these plants are extremely drought-tolerant and can handle infrequent watering. ZZ plants should generally be watered once the soil dries out completely—usually once every two weeks, depending on their growing conditions. It's better to water your plant less than giving it too much water. When watering, give it enough so that the moisture runs out of the bottom of the pot and throw out the excess water.
