- Light: The Black ZZ Plant tolerates a wide range of lighting conditions, from low to bright indirect light. However, it thrives best in medium to bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
- Watering: The Black ZZ Plant is known for its ability to withstand drought, so it’s important to avoid overwatering. Allow the soil to dry out partially between waterings. Water the plant thoroughly, and then let the excess water drain away. Err on the side of underwatering rather than overwatering, as the plant is susceptible to root rot.
- Soil: Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging, as this plant prefers slightly dry conditions. A mixture of potting soil, perlite, and sand can provide adequate drainage.

It can tolerate slightly lower temperatures but should be protected from cold drafts.
