How to Repot a ZZ Plant (z plant Zamiifolia) -
It’s easy to overlook the signs of a plant that needs repotting, as most of the indicators often lie below the soil level or are mistaken for a different problem. ZZ plants (Zamioculcas zamiifolia), hardy in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 9 through 11, adapt to low light and aref tolerant of drought conditions, making them ideal for indoor growing. ZZs also perform well in a wide range of soil types, so you can repot them in an all-purpose potting mix.
Mix together equal parts sphagnum peat moss, horticultural perlite, organic compost and sterilized loam. Use enough of each ingredient in the potting medium to fill the pot you will put the ZZ in. For instance, if repotting in a 12-inch pot, you would need 3 quarts of each ingredient
Irrigate your ZZ until water drains from the pot before transplanting if it is root-bound. Signs of a root-bound plant include cracked or misshapen pots, roots protruding through the pot’s drainage holes, rapid wilting, stunted growth and early browning of leaves.
Position your hand firmly on top of the soil, and turn the pot upside down if removing a ZZ plant from a 4- to 10-inch pot. Shake the pot up and down until the root ball and the surrounding soil slide from the pot. If the root ball and soil don’t slide out, tap the lip of pot firmly on a hard surface several times and slide the root ball out.
Dig around the perimeter of the pot with a garden trowel if removing a ZZ plant from a pot with a 12-inch diameter or larger. Gently work the trowel under the root ball on all sides and pry the plant out of the pot. Don’t grab the ZZ plant by its stem to help remove it.
Scrape off as much old soil as possible by hand. Sever any roots encircling other roots at the point they make contact with hand pruners or garden shears. Cut back any black, limp and diseased roots to healthy tissue with the pruners or shears.
Cut three or four shallow, vertical slices through the sides of the root ball with a utility knife. Untangle the roots gently using a root hook or your fingers.
Position a mesh screen in the bottom of the new pot. Place enough moist potting medium in the bottom of the pot so that the top of the root ball sits about one inch below the lip.
Position the ZZ on top of the moist soil. If the root ball sits below one inch from the lip, add more soil; if it’s closer than one inch from the lip, remove some soil. Spread the roots out as much as possible in the bottom of the pot.
Fill the area around the root ball with potting medium to the top of the pot. Don’t tamp down the medium, but allow the water to settle it naturally.
Irrigate the potting medium until water drains from the pot.
This houseplant really shines – literally! I love the ZZ Plant because it’s gorgeous, tough & so easy to care for. Other names it goes by are Zanzibar Gem, Welcome Plant & its tongue twisting botanic name Zamioculcas zamifolia. Mine just got repotted so I’m sharing that project with you along with tips for keeping your ZZ healthy & looking like its fabulous self.
I’m always interested to know where plants are from and which others are in the same family and/or genus. This shiny beauty shares the same family with these other popular houseplants: pothos, spathiphyllums, agloanemas and diffenbachias.
ZZ plant Zamiifolia (zamiifolia plant) - To sum it all up: ignore this plant & it’ll be happy. Of course, shower it with admiration and praise but no babying is needed with this 1. Water your ZZ Plant infrequently, don’t let it sit in water, keep it out of direct sun & never use leaf shine.
