ZZ Plant Misshapen

Danielle Badgley added on June 19, 2017 | Answered

Hi, I've had my ZZ plant for many years, but the stems don't stand up straight, they are all bent over. New stems start off straight, but end up all bent. It looks ridiculous. Is there anything I can do to get it to look normal and full?

The plant appears to be pot bound which doesn't account for the droopy stems, but it also appears that it may be overwatered as the stems have a grayish green colour at the bends. I would consider removing the damaged stems. Allowing the plant to dry out if soggy, and them transplant into a larger pot. Be sure to use a well draining potting soil at this plant doesn't like soggy feet and need little water. Also, is this plant near a air conditioning vent? That me make things worse.
