I asked if I could take a picture and they laughed as I inquired why they labeled the pot so.
"People keep wanting to touch it to see if it's real or not!"
It is in fact real and a plant that really doesn't need much attention when it comes to care just as long it's sited properly in the home.
This is Zamioculcas zamiifolia, a popular tropical indoor plant from eastern Africa that's often referred to as "Zanzibar Gem" or the "ZZ" plant. It tolerates variable light conditions and prefers to be on the dry side. It can be easy to kill for the overzealous waterer or occasional passer-by'er who just has to get-up-all-in dis plant's business, yo. hhahahah

The Anti-Social Houseplant.
I went to get some balikbayan boxes for my mom and at the travel office, they had this potted houseplant that gave me a little chuckle.
