Though it's slow growing, this is one of the toughest plants in my garden. It has survived years of drought with minimal water, plus it adds a nice tropical look to my shade garden.

I have a few cast iron plants, under my oaks. I will say nothing I grow takes less maintenance than these plants. If the leaves start looking ratty, I just snip them off and it grows more. The plant does well in a large pot or in the ground.

Oh to be able to grow these outdoors! They're strictly houseplants here in the UK. I've always loved them, I have 2 in pots. There are some fabulous new varieties out there as well.
