ZZ Plants aren’t fussy at all when it comes to fertilizing. I feed mine with worm compost & compost.

Humans who raise wolf puppies must spend 24 hours a day, seven days a week with them in order to socialize these puppies for scientific study. And while the pups may seem cute, they will grow to be predatory wolves, not humanity’s faithful companions.
