  1. Yes, certainly sir.
    I’ll be checking in on your plant some day.

  2. This plant belonged to my grandmother. The tub it is in was an old washing machine tub. Both are really old. They don’t call it the cast Iron Plant for nothing. It’s somehow comforting to have these resilient relics from another era, lingering around to remind us.
