Repotting: ZZ plants love it snug! Repot every two to three years. Check the roots before repotting and use a pot 5 cm larger in diameter than the original pot.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is my ZZ plant pot bound?
Although ZZ plants like a snug pot, they don’t like being pot-bound. Check every two to three years to check if the roots are not overly compact. Signs of pot-bound are browning leaves, roots growing out the drainage holes and soil that drains and dries rapidly.
Is my ZZ plant toxic?
ZZ plants are mildly toxic and shouldn’t be consumed. Keep out of reach of pets and children. When handling the plant, wear gloves and wash your hands to avoid irritation.
