The zamioculcas zamiifolia, also known as the Zz plant, grows stems in a graceful, wand-like shape that start thick and bulbous at the base and then tapers to a point. Along the stem are fleshy, oval-shaped leaves that make the plant look like stylized feathers. The entire plant has a waxy, shiny coating that makes it appear to resemble those made of plastic.
The Zz grows well in low or bright lighting conditions and with frequent or much less frequent amounts of water. It is one of the easiest-to-care-for plants, with it actually thriving on more neglectful conditions - overwatering is its biggest threat.
