Why is my ZZ plant falling over?
Why are my ZZ plant stalks falling over? ZZ plant stalks most commonly droop or fall over due to overwatering, which leads to root rot. ZZ plant stems can also fall over due to light problems, severe under-watering, lack of or excessive fertilizer, cold stress, transplant stress or trauma.
Should you stake a ZZ plant?
Put other plants that grow thick and straight near it, like Sansevieria, Spathiphyllum or colorful Croton (among other indoor plants). Alternatively, you can simply find a nice-looking stake (like a piece of bamboo) and loosely tether your ZZ leaves to it.
How do I know if my ZZ plant is dying?
The most common sign of root rot in ZZ Plants is discoloration. ZZs that have damaged roots lose their deep green color and instead start to fade from pale green to yellow before the leaves fall off and die.
