Very low water needs. This plant has swollen rhizomes that store water and nutrients. It is important to allow the soil to dry out completely before watering. This could be up to a month or even longer in certain conditions. It is important to water it thoroughly when it's time and allow all the water to drain out of the drainage hole so that the thick roots do not rot.
The ZZ is the definition of a low maintenance plant. Fertilize once a year with diluted general houseplant fertilizer during spring or summer. The average household humidity is great. Do not prune. This plant can be propagated through root division or leaf cuttings. Wipe dust off leaves periodically to keep them shiny and clean.
