The ZZ plant, officially named zamioculcas zamiifolia, is native to East Africa but thrives anywhere.

By far and away the best indoor palm is the Howea forsteriana or Kentia Palm. Howeas can survive in low light situations and stay a healthy, deep green color. Fairly resistant to low humidity, spider mites & mealy bugs. These palms are somewhat resistant to drought & will survive seemingly unaffected by the soil getting dry. However, this plant still performs best with plenty of light, water, humidity & air flow. One should not think it is ‘happy’ in a dismal indoor situation, just tolerant.
