The ZZ Plant is characterized by its waxy green leaves above the surface of its potting mix, and its large potato-like rhizomes underneath. These rhizomes store water, making the ZZ a drought-tolerant plant that can go weeks without water.
- 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.
