The Story

Also known as the bar room plant, the Cast Iron Plant has been a popular houseplant since the Victorian era of the 1800s due to its ability to flourish in dark and drafty rooms. It is native to Japan, China and the Himalayas, and grows in marsh-like environments.

I ordered plants from 2 other places. Those plants did not arrive in good condition. From now on I will only order from Leon & George. You all send healthy plants & they are well packed. You all also do follow up. I appreciate that. You all care. Thanks for the playlist for the plants.

Healthy, lush plant with beautiful pot and stand

5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love my new cast iron plant! He is in great shape and looks beautiful in the white ceramic pot and the dark wood plant stand. I waited for the plant stand to be back in stock, but, once it was, my order shipped quickly. The packaging was genius; I was shocked at how well it was packaged! I did have a little bit of dirt spillage but I'm in Illinois so he made a long trip and, honestly, I was expecting more of a mess just given how far the plant had to travel. Even the little bit of dirt that did spill was completely contained within the packaging as I opened everything and got it all situated. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. I've already got another plant on the way - my cast iron needed a friend!

Greatly exceeded my expectations!

5 out of 5 stars

Given how beautiful the plants and planters looked on the web site, I decided to give this a go. But, I’m well aware of how plants can look after shipping! But this Cast Iron plant came packaged by the most amazing (and effective) plant and planter packing I’ve ever seen…with good instructions. The plant is absolutely beautiful and I keep walking by looking at it in amazement. After getting the first one, I went back on the site and ordered one for my desk. I love the way they classify the products, particularly the “pet friendly” classification. I’m obviously a new and ardent fan.
