The Best 10 Methods to grow better ZZ Plants as indoor houseplants

ZZ plants make great houseplants because they’re easy to care for and they don’t need a lot of light to grow. If you’re seeing any of the signs that your ZZ plant is underwatered, then follow these simple tips to get your plant back on track.

1) Check the light requirements before buying your ZZ plant. They need bright light to grow well.

2) Make sure the pot has good drainage. Put some gravel in the bottom of the pot to help with drainage.

3) Give your ZZ plant a good watering once a week. You can test to see if the plant needs water by sticking your finger in the soil. If it’s dry up to your second knuckle, then it’s time to water.

4) ZZ plants like moist soil, but don’t like to be underwater. Make sure to water until the water drains out of the pot so you don’t overwater.

5) Fertilize once a month. You can use half-strength houseplant fertilizer to fertilize your ZZ plant.

6) ZZ plants are slow growers, so don’t expect your ZZ plant to have lots of new growth in one year. Your plant will grow more slowly if it doesn’t get enough light. This is why experts recommend brighter light for the ZZ plant.

7) Deadhead your ZZ plant and keep it pruned to promote new growth and flower production.

8) If you want a faster-growing ZZ Plant, buy one that has already started to grow. These plants will be bigger and able to handle more abuse than a smaller starter plant.

9) They like the soil to dry out between waterings, and you can tell when it’s time to water by sticking your finger into the soil up to your second knuckle (about an inch into the soil). If it’s dry then it’s time to add some water.

10) ZZ plants are toxic to pets, so keep them away from any animals that might try to eat them.
