Should I trim my leggy ZZ plant?
Should a ZZ Plant be pruned? ZZs grow slowly and do not usually require much, if any, pruning. They do well to shape themselves naturally as they grow. Pruning is generally only done to remove dead or dying leaves and stems or to keep a plant from growing too tall.
How do I make my ZZ plant more bushy?
The best way to make a ZZ plant bushy is to provide plenty of light and to meet its basic care conditions. Your ZZ plant will become bushy by producing lots of new stems, and providing good conditions will maximize the number and size of these stems.
How do you propagate a leggy ZZ plant?
Cut off a stalk at the base of your plant, making a straight cut with a sanitized knife. Place the cut stem in water, and change out the water every 3-4 weeks. If you forget, it’s fine, as long as there’s no mold growing. Keep the cutting near a window where it can receive bright, indirect light.
