Questions About ZZ Plants

    The only time I have seen a ZZ plant get leggy is when it gets too little water (which is hard to do but can happen). Make sure that the water you give it is actually getting to the roots. Potting soil can actually repel water when it dries out, so it is possible that the water is running down the sides of the pot rather than being absorbed and getting to the roots. After watering, sick your finger into the soil and make sure it is wet. If not, you may need to soak the pot to re-hydrate the soil.
