I joined the forum today hoping to get some advice on my Cast Iron Plant. It had only 7 big leaves when I purchased it from my local nursery about 3 months ago, however, the leaves are curled up and twisted, particularly towards the lower end (it was like this when I brought it home - I did not question until I compared it to online images). The Nursery keep all their house plants together in one big room with a glass roof so it could have gotten too much light. I have had to battle spider mites on a couple of occasions using a mild soap solution and *fingers crossed* have not seen them since.
I keep it on my desk away from the window where it receives only a small amount of indirect light. On the one hand it seems to be doing very well, I have 6 shoots already, but the original 7 leaves are still twisted and all bent in one direction. Are these leaves beyond repair, and if so, will the plant have a better chance if I remove them?
Thanks in advance for your help!
