New leaves come out a vibrant green and turn dark as they harden off! ZZ plants love to be left alone to do their thing and shine. They thrive on neglect making them perfect for the plant lover with a busy lifestyle.
ZZ plants are one of the easiest to care for!
Light: Low to bright light. Can tolerate direct light with hardening off.
Water: Allow soil to dry out completely, then wait a little longer before watering. ZZ store extra water and nutrients in their roots making it much easier to over water than to underwater.
Temps: best kept between 60 and 75 degrees. Can tolerate temps as low as 45 degrees.
Pets: If chewed or swallowed symptoms can cause immediate pain or a burning sensation and swelling of the lips, mouth, tongue and throat. Contact dermatitis may also occur in sensitive individuals. For more information please visit https://www.childrens.health.qld.gov.au/poisonous-...
