Care of ZZ Black | Raven ZZ Plant | Zamioculcas Zamiifolia is simple, making it the gold standard for houseplant beginners, preoccupied office workers, and brown thumbs. To encourage growth, feed your Raven once every two or three months with a well-balanced fertilizer. During the growing season and in perfect conditions, ZZ Black plants can grow up to 1 cm per day! This speedy growth is normally followed by a long dormancy period. Every two to three years repot your ZZ plant to give new room for it to grow. To control the unruly branches, simply cut them at the base. When pruning unwanted branches, be careful to not touch the sap! It can be irritating to sensitive skin. However, good drainage holes at the bottom of the pots are essential. Re-pot the Raven ZZ plant once a year at the beginning of spring, especially during the first 3 – 5 years – whilst it’s growing up. However, you may propagate by dividing rhizomes or with leaf cuttings. Leaf cuttings have to be placed in a pot with a plastic covering and then wait for roots to begin growing, which could take up to a year. Cut away leaflets that are turning yellow near the base of a stem. Once a stem has grown much longer than all other stems you can remove that stem or cut it to size at the tip. The problem with cutting it to size at the tip is it can look quite odd, so removing it completely might be the best option.
