Can Cast Iron Plants Be Cut Back to the Ground?

We experienced more snow and ice this winter than is usual. My cast iron plant leaves were pushed down to the ground and have not recovered their shape. Can cast iron plants be cut back to the ground?

I would trim back any damaged leaves at the soil level. You can gently pull up the leaves and determine if they are damaged or broken.
You can trim away any damaged leaf tips, though this can be tedious.
