ZZ plant in Self Watering Pot Care Instructions

Smart Pot: 

Sub-irrigation system ensures optimal water supply and solves the problem of frequent watering.

The water level indicator shows when the reservoir is empty and needs to be re-filled. It takes the guesswork out of watering process. This innovative pot creates the perfect environment for each plant.

How to water:

1. After receiving a plant wait for 1 week before watering.

2. First 3 months water your plant as you normally would from the top, through the soil. Add about 6 cups of water once every 2 weeks. Spread water evenly around the plant. Allow top soil to dry well between watering.

This period is important for a roots development. During this time plant is adapting to it’s new environment after being moved from a nursery and repotted.

3. After 3 months start using pot’s water supply shaft to water your plant.

4. Add water in the pot half way, using the water supply shaft. Check water level indicator to see how much water was put in.

5. After water indicator shows low water supply wait for 2 weeks and then add water half way again. On average add water once a month.

6. Once in a while water your plant as you normally would, pouring water from the top through the soil. It is good for a plant to have water running through it’s roots. Watch water level indicator to see how much water got in the pot.

7. Always check top soil before watering. This plant needs to have soil to dry out between waterings. Stick your finger about an inch into the soil and if it feels dry add water, if top soil feels moist wait for few more days before watering. Yellow leaves indicate overwatering.


Wipe leaves regularly with a damp cloth to remove dust.


4 times a year with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.
