Extremely hardy and tough, this tropical plant thrives in almost any condition. Well-liked since the nineteenth century. Here's why:
How the name “bar room plants” originated: The plants require very little light and can do well with poor air quality.
Small purple flowers: Cast irons display their bell-shaped flower rarely (and unfortunately, no one knows what causes them to bloom).
Cast iron plants can grow in low light conditions but thrive in bright indirect light, such as from a shaded window. Avoid direct sun, as it will quickly scorch the foliage.
This houseplant can be kept in practically any place in the home because it fits the temperature range. However, the plants prefer temperatures between 55-70°F (13-21°C).
Make sure your pot has drainage holes. Water these plants sparingly throughout the year. But, in winter, the Cast Iron plant needs even less water.
