ZZ Plant

Zamioculcas Zamiifolia

From £20.00

The ZZ plant is a beautiful houseplant with deep green glossy leaves extending from its thick, long stems. Definitely one of the easiest indoor plants to care for, we highly recommend Zamioculas for any novice indoor gardener.


How To Care For ZZ Plant

Only water when the soil has completely dried out. This plant can do without water for months (in the right spot). If you notice a weakened grey stem, yellowing leaves and dry, crispy patches on the leaf edges then the plant is under-watered or in a too spot that is too bright (if you are watering).

You can put this plant in almost any spot in the house. Just don’t place it in a cold, drafty spot or an area with too much direct sunlight.

Hailing from Africa, Zamioculcas is fine with low humidity. Just wipe the leaves with a damp cloth from time to time to remove any dust or potential pests and avoid over-misting – or for a simpler solution pop in the shower and rinse down.

This plant likes well-draining soil. You can add extra perlite, wood chippings or coco coir to the potting medium to allow for extra drainage.

You can use houseplant fertiliser at half strength or cactus feed once a month, but it shouldn’t need too much. You’re always better to underfeed rather than overfeed.

Not prone to pests, but keep an eye out for the common house pests such as mealy bugs, scale, aphids, spider mites and fungus gnats. You can apply neem oil every 2 or 3 weeks too, for general house plant maintenance.

ZZ Plant is easy to propagate by means of division or by taking stem cuttings. Or, simply repot your ZZ plant into a bigger pot every other year.
