Why is my ZZ Plant so floppy?
The main reason the stems droop is from lack of light. Stems will stand up straighter if the light is coming from above. Very dry soil is another reason stems droop. ZZ plants can survive in low light, but grow faster in bright, indirect light.
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 you tell if ZZ Plant is overwatered?
Overwatering results in mushy brown stalks and yellowing of the leaves. Dropping leaves can also be an indication of overwatering. Hold off on watering and prune your plant. Once the soil is completely dry all the way through the pot then your plant is ready for a drink.
