Care of a Castanospermum australe, also known as lucky bean plant or black bean, requires the following: ensuring that the potting mixture is always moist but that the roots don't sit in a pool of water; spraying the leaves regularly to prevent them from collecting dust; and providing it with bright, indirect light along with some late or early sun. Overwatering can promote the growth of fungal root rot.
