What It Looks Like
Fleshy stems and glossy, deep green leaves make ZZ plant (Zamioculcas zamiifolia) look almost artificial. This Tanzanian native grows very slowly to 3 feet tall and about as wide.
What It Needs
Plant does best in moderate and low light. It doesn’t need much water; let soil dry out between waterings.
How to Use
Small plants look good on tabletops or low bookcases; set larger ones on the floor next to chairs and end tables.
It requires very little water and sunlight, so you’ll have to try hard to let it die. Vassilkioti even suggests that letting the soil “dry out between waterings” is a good idea.
