About Your Cast Iron Plant

Cast Iron Plant is a great houseplant choice for beginners, as it performs well with minimal care. These plants handle the lowest light conditions, from fluorescent light to bright, indirect light indoors to full shade outside where hardy. They take well to drying out between watering, and don’t need to be fed often.

These plants do extremely well in offices or buildings where they can live away from windows or natural light. They are frequently found in atriums indoors as they pair well with many different plants especially in mixed containers. Cast Iron Plants can be moved outdoors during the summer months and into fully shaded patios or front porches; they appreciate the higher humidity outdoors.
