Choose one of our five no-fuss favorites, from a classic jade to a ponytail palm.
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.
