Plant Care Guide
Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. Avoid direct sunlight.
About once every 10-14 days. Allow soil to dry out completely and water less often in winter.
Level of Care
Easy! Just avoid direct sunlight and don't overwater.
ZZs remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.
Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about 1-2 times a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.
Prefers warm conditions above 60°F. Warm temperatures improve leaf production. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.
A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best.
Pruning & Propagation
Prune yellow or damaged stems down to soil level. To propagate, large plants can be divided.
Sorry! All parts of the plant are considered mildly toxic if consumed.
