Moisture Meter

Included with your plant to make watering easy.

We know finding the perfect watering routine is tough and unlike that armchair you bought last year, investing in a large living plant requires a little more attention. As a Léon & George customer, your plant comes with this simple and sleek tool that tells you when it’s time to water.

Designed and tested with research institutions and farmers, this moisture meter works without batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = enough water, white = time to water.

customer reviews for the Cast Iron Plant

Overall Great - a bit rought to start

Shift happens! During transit our plant got a bit banged up. Never fail -- we contacted the plant Dr who assisted and it took a bit, but it is looking good these days. I love that it is already well established and full. And the secret bonus was the box! We got our delivery over 3 months ago and still have the box out for the cat -- it is her favorite cat tunnel!

Perfect Plant

I am in love with my new Cast Iron plant. It is gorgeous and I really appreciated all the information that came with it. The pot is also beautiful. I have had my plant for about three weeks now and she's looking better and better each day. The company also has been great at communicating with me and answering my questions.

I’m so happy!

The help began when I reached out to L&G to ask their advice on what sort of plant might thrive in my low light environment. A swift response came back to me, and a Cast Iron Plant was decided upon. I love mid century mod style, so the pot and stand was an easy choice, and the order was made. I was kept informed about the order, and I waited with great excitement for my new friend to arrive. The arrival was an amazing experience…the innovative packaging used to transport the potted plant and stand is so cool…it’s like an Apple product, and the unboxing is really fun! Now my new plant friend Philip is here, and looks so lovely. Philip really fits in. I love Philip.

Featured Questions

How are your plants packaged for shipping?

We take great care in packaging each and every plant set to ensure it arrives in pristine condition. Our innovative, custom packaging allows us to not only protect our delicate ceramic planters but also any variety of living greenery. During winter months, we use insulating materials to protect foliage and roots, and in summer, we wrap plants to boost humidity inside their box. Unboxing is easy and delightful, just ask any of our customers!

Ordering extra large plant sets for shipping? Please note that extra large plant sets are sent in two separate parcels. One parcel contains the plant, secure within its plastic nursery pot. The second parcel contains the ceramic pot and wood stand, if applicable. Shipments are carefully timed to ensure that both parcels are received simultaneously, and tracking is provided as soon as the parcels ship.

What is the moisture meter and how does it work?

Starting in March 2021, all large and extra large plant sets will include a sleek, innovative moisture meter that will tell you when it’s time to water. 

This moisture meter does not require batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = no need to water, white = time to water. To use, gently insert as deep as possible into your plant’s soil, taking care not to damage any roots. Wait 20-30 minutes to read. If the window is completely white, water your plant as instructed on your care card. If the window is blue, hold off on watering until it turns completely white. You may leave the moisture meter in the soil of your plant, or remove it and insert again when you believe it may be time to water. 

Find more details and information about your new moisture meter here, or purchase them on their own here.

Please note that Léon & George does not take responsibility for damage caused by incorrect or forceful use of the moisture meter. 

What's included with each plant set?

When you purchase a plant from Léon & George, you're getting a lot more than just a plant. Here's what's included with each of our sets:

What is your 45-day guarantee all about?

We want to assure you that anyone can be a successful plant owner. Our plants are all easy to care for and come with foolproof care instructions. It takes a little practice to develop a green thumb, but if the plant dies within your first 45 days, we'll replace it!

What is Léon & George, and how does it work?

Léon & George delivers healthy and beautiful indoor plants to your door—already potted, styled, and ready for their closeup.

Customers can choose the size and variety of plant as well as specify the pot color and styling, or keep things simple and take a recommendation from one of our stylists.

What if I travel somewhere – will my indoor plants die?

Not necessarily, especially if you plan ahead a bit. If you're going away for a week or less, there should be no problem if you soak the soil in advance. And if you're going away for longer check out our blog post or send us an email at hello@leonandgeorge.com and we'll give you instructions for prepping your plant for the long haul.

Your plants look so perfect in the pictures… Are they real?!

Yes! Our plants are 100% real, which means that they'll need a little TLC to keep growing. But thanks to our plant care and design team, they'll be styled, nurtured, and primed for life indoors before they arrive at your door. And we promise, if you're kind to your plants, they'll return the favor! Learn about the health benefits of spending time around plants.

Can I send a plant as a gift? How does that work?

We're a little biased, but we think plants make the perfect gift. Start by selecting the delivery location at the top of any Léon & George webpage. That way, you'll see exactly which plants are available. After you pick out a plant, simply fill in the recipient's address for shipping. You can even add a personal note for them at checkout, and we'll include it with their delivery. White-glove deliveries (for large and extra large plants only) can be scheduled at checkout. In this case, be sure to let the recipient know to be home during the delivery window.

What's included with the plant when it's delivered as a gift?

Every gift order includes the plant and pot set, simple care instructions to keep the plant happy and healthy. Gift orders are also covered under our 45-day guarantee and our Plant Doctor program, which means the recipient can call us anytime for plant care support. Being a new plant parent can have its ups and downs, but we make sure our plants are simple to care for and easy to love!
