ZZ Plants are popular and classic, low maintenance houseplants due to their tolerance of pretty much any environment and extremely easy care level. These guys will take their time growing in a low light space, but will grow effortlessly quick if they are given a spot with more light. It's necessary for ZZ Plants to dry out between waterings, so only water your plant every 7-10 days.
ZZ Plants make great outdoor plants, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your ZZ Plant in Full to Partial Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about once a week with moderate temperatures.
