Growing with ZZ plant


Both of my ZZ plants are among my favorite plants because they’re so resilient. They can go a long while without being watered, and do pretty well in low light situations (Eg far from a window, north-facing window).

Keep an eye out for the little “root balls” that form at or slightly below the soil surface. These are called rhizomes and they store extra water, like a camel’s back does, and they’re one of the reasons ZZ plants are awesome.
