Pet Toxicity

Keep out of reach of pets who like to nibble on leaves. Toxic if ingested.

When to water?

Reach your finger in to feel the soil. If there is still dampness, then let it dry out more. In the summer, the soil may dry out faster than in the winter when there’s less light and it’s colder. Zz plants can go a few weeks without watering due to their rhizomes that hold the water and nutrients inside.

All purpose potting mix

Report if you see the roots outgrowing the nursery pot. Pot up to 2-3” wider with a well-draining soil. Add in cactus soil or perlite to ensure regular potting mix is porous and well-draining.

Cleaning

Clean the leaves by wiping down each one with a soft cloth.
