My boss was going to toss these two plants so I took them, but he didn't know what they are. They have shiny, waxy leaves in which the longest leaves measure 1.5 in wide by 3.5 in long. Thank you in advance for your help with any information.

Welcome! to ATP

Its a ZZ Plant (Zamioculcas Zamifolia). The way to care for them is to not care for them. Very little water, no fertilizer and not too much light.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and proclaiming...."WOW What a Ride!!" -Mark Frost
