A soil mix that is airy and well-draining is ideal. While raven ZZ plants can survive in standard houseplant soil, they will do best when potted in a soil mix that is amended with plenty of perlite, pumice, or sand to help increase drainage.
The raven ZZ plant has thick, water-storing rhizomes which means it is drought-tolerant and does not need to be watered frequently. In fact, overwatering this plant can lead to root rot which will quickly kill a ZZ plant. The best way to prevent overwatering is to allow the soil to dry out thoroughly between waterings. Keep in mind that during the spring and summer when the plant is actively growing it will need to be watered more frequently than in the fall or winter months when it is dormant. As a general rule of thumb, if you are unsure about whether it is time to water your ZZ plant, you are probably best to wait a little bit longer. It is better to underwater these succulents than to overwater them.
Temperature and Humidity
This tropical plant does well as a houseplant because it thrives in warm temperatures and average humidity levels. It also does well in humid conditions, although it doesn’t require them. Ensure temperatures stay between 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 29 degrees Celsius) to avoid sending your plant into shock.
In addition to a soil mix that is rich with organic materials, the raven ZZ plant benefits from regular fertilization during its active growing period. Applying a balanced fertilizer designed for houseplants once every three to four weeks will encourage strong, healthy growth.
Potting and Repotting Raven ZZ Plant
Raven ZZ plants are slow-growing plants that only need to be repotted once they have outgrown their previous container. They also don’t mind being rootbound, so you will likely only need to repot your raven ZZ plant once every two to three years. Roots growing from the pot’s drainage holes or the plant’s rhizomes pushing up against the edge of the pot are both indications that your ZZ plant may be ready for a new container. Ensure that you only upgrade the size of your pot by a few inches at a time to avoid accidentally overwatering your plant (too much excess soil means more water will be held in the soil between waterings), and refresh as much of the soil during repotting as you can to provide your plant with lots of nutrients.
