The Cast Iron plant is a herbaceous perennial with a reputation for being a very hardy and “nearly indestructible” houseplant. They are ideal for beginners, frequent travelers, or “brown thumb” gardeners who desire a beautiful slow-growing, very low maintenance plant. Considered extremely hardy, they do well in shade and low light or indirect sun with little water making it a plant to sit back and enjoy. Simply providing light and water will ensure that this plant will flourish for years. They even thrive planted outside in your yard in zones that stay above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. The Cast Iron prefers to have dry soil before watering and it is best to allow them to get a little root bound before potting them up. Fertilize a couple of times a year with light liquid fertilizer. Shipping and handling can be very tough on live plants so please be sure to open and check your plant right away. Mist the foliage and check the soil for moisture. Our plant team gives each plant a drink before they are individually shipped and wrapped so they may not need to be watered right away. Overwatering is one of the most common causes of the decline in indoor plants. We are unable to ship this plant to California due to restrictions by the California Department of Agriculture. Please be aware that our plants are not intended for consumption by humans or animals. There are no other authorized sellers of American Plant Exchange plants. Please ensure that you order and receive an American Plant Exchange plant shipped and sold by Amazon.
