Care

General Maintenance: Repot every other year as needed, ideally in the springtime. As rhizomatous plants, cast-iron plants can tolerate less frequent repotting, even going as long as four to five years without potting. Look for when the plant has outgrown the pot, and its roots are growing over the edge. Propagate by division. 

Temperature: Not too particular to temperature. Try to avoid temperatures below 7° or above 29° Celsius.

Light: These plants do not require a lot of light and will do well in most low-light conditions. Too much sunlight may cause damage to the foliage. 

Watering: Allow the plant to dry out almost entirely between watering. This plant is fairly drought tolerant, and will experience root rot if it is overwatered. 

Soil: Grows well in sand or clay based soil.

Fertilizer: Fertilize your cast-iron plant every two weeks with an all-purpose liquid fertilize during the spring and summer months.
