Zamioculcas (dollar tree) - undemanding evergreen plant native to tropical regions of Africa. Like many of his collected from the same region, Zamioculcas itself is able to tolerate the adverse growing conditions. The plant is accustomed to survive during periods of drought, so learned to store water and to fold the leaves to reduce surface evaporation.

If you want to give the plant to survive, then watering is not important. Zamioculcas adapt to your conditions. But if you want to see a healthy plant with bright dark green leaves on the watering schedule you need to pay special attention.
