ZZ Plant

Zamioculcas, Zanzibar Gem, Fern Arum


ZZ Plants can live in low to bright, indirect sunlight. They’re the perfect plant to bring life to a dark room or corner.


Your ZZ Plant only needs to be watered fortnightly, allowing its soil to completely dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. During the winter months feel free to only water him once a month if his soil is still moist after 2 weeks.


ZZ Plants do not have any particular humidity requirements.


Your ZZ Plant does not have any particular temperature requirements, but will suffer if subjected to temperatures below 10ºC.


Feed with general houseplant fertiliser every 2 months during the growing season (spring to summer).


ZZ Plants are toxic to both people and animals - keep away from small children and pets.

Additional care information

ZZ Plants can easily be propagated in water from a stem and leaf cutting.


Brown stalks and yellowing leaves: suggest your ZZ Plant has been overwatered. Make sure you allow its soil to fully dry between waterings. Dry, crispy tips leaf tips: indicates your plant is underwatered or scorched from direct sunlight.
