  • Glazed inside and out, completely waterproof
  • No drainage hole, plant should be staged, ideal for indoor or outdoor use

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.

Note: Complimentary moisture meters are offered as a free gift and supplemental tool that can be used in conjunction with manually gauging your plant’s soil for moisture. They are not a substitute for regular monitoring. 100% efficacy is not guaranteed as soil composition and other variables may affect readings.

customer reviews for the Cast Iron Plant

Love it

Beautiful plant that’s easy to care for. Every plant I’ve received from L&G has been healthy and vibrant and their guidance on plant care has turned me from a plant killer to a green thumb.

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.

Love our new plant. It is beautiful and was well packaged / delivered

So far, so good. Seems to be as advertised... pet friendly, low light, low maintenance. I plan to water weekly per the instructions. Thanks!

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

I have a last minute unforeseen event, I will be absent during the delivery, what should I do?

For White Glove delivery the first thing to do is to notify us by email at bonjour@leonandgeorge.com or by phone at +33686879202 to tell us if a neighbor, friend, or caretaker can receive the plant for you, or if it can be safely dropped off at your doorstep. We will be able to transmit these new indications to the delivery person. If neither of these solutions is possible, we can also deliver to another address (office for example). Finally, as a last resort, we will schedule a new delivery. This service will be billed at the corresponding price to the delivery of your items, as indicated on the order form.

For Standard delivery La Poste Colissimo, Chronopost or UPS will send you an email to tell you the procedure to follow (redelivery or collection point). But don't delay in picking up your plant that needs light!
