Common Zinnia needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Common Zinnia love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Common Zinnia after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
When I said pest magnifier, I grow all of my plants outside. Instead of eating the plant, I get anything from moths to butterflies to spiders to even flies around the flower where they hide out. Beautiful plant, grows tall so prepare something for it to grow up along.
It was a class plant that I got to take home, we left it over a long, hot weekend with little to no shade when it was being watered once a day. A classmate gave it some watered down 5 hour energy and it seemed to be good. I do not recommend this though because for any other plant it would have died, this plant is friendly, but energy drinks are not:)
