    Hello everyone! I am new here. I am a bit of a novice in terms of taking care of plants, so I’m looking forward to learning a lot from this sight.

    I have some questions about my ZZ plant. It recently sprouted new stems that shot up very quickly. They are now very long (several inches taller than the rest of the stems) and leggy. At first they were drooping over quite a bit, but now they are starting to stand up a little bit better.

    How do I manage stems that are too leggy? There are very few leaves on these new stems.
    Also, how do I prevent drooping a new stems? Or what can I do better to support them?

    Thank you in advance!

    What are the lighting conditions now compared to where it was when you purchased it? It sounds like these have extended in length in an attempt to reach additional light...
