The ZZ plant, code name for zamioculcas zamiifolia (you see now why it needed a code name!) is a beautiful low maintenance house plant. Their shiny leaves and full stems give them a lovely aesthetic. They prefer medium to low indirect light and can handle some neglect. Forgiving to everything but the dreaded over-water, it is best to leave the watering can alone until the soil is completely dried through, and then give them a thorough drink. Why so long between hydrating, you ask? They have a very unique and interesting rhizome structure which stores water to be released as needed by the plant in bulbs below the soil. If you can poke your finger down the top two inches or so and still feel moister let them be a little longer. This will help their soft roots avoid any chance of root rot.
