📚 ZZ Plant Care Guide

The tropical ZZ Plant is native to Eastern Africa and is a fantastic plant for beginners. The ZZ plant grows smooth, shiny leaves that range from bright lime to emerald green. It tolerates low light and has low water requirements, making it the ideal indoor houseplant.
ZZ Plant details
💧️ Water - Low Water
Low Water Needs

ZZ Plant is fairly forgiving when it comes to missing a watering day. These plants don't require much oversight.

For ZZ Plant, it is important to let the majority of the soil dry in between waterings. Be careful about overwatering your plant -- this can lead to fungal disease like root rot and pest infestations.

Growing Outdoors
If growing outdoors, you will want to plant ZZ Plant in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.

Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place ZZ Plant near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade.
You can also consider placing your ZZ Plant a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf scorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.
