ZZ plant repotting
I have two large, beautiful ZZ plants which were extremely root bound. I recently freed them, washed some of the water from their roots and placed them in pots one size larger. One plant is huge, the pot too large for the space and too heavy to be manageable. After reading on this site I have concluded that I could have pruned the roots and kept in the same size pot. Can anyone advise me about doing that now? Will it over traumatize the plant? If not how much of the roots can I trim without harming the plant?? I used a quick draining potting mix but would be reluctant to water the plant again since I know they prefer to be on the dry side. It is miracle grow for Bougainvillea and other plants that prefer quit draining soil. Is this okay?? Help much appreciated! LOVE these plants and do not have to water often but do not wish to break my back when doing so!
