Cast Iron Plant Large


The Aspidistra Elatior, more commonly known as the Cast Iron Plant is native to Japan and Taiwan.  It is virtually impossible to kill, hence it's name cast Iron!   This is a very hardy plant which can thrive with very little hands on care.  This makes a great choice if you are a self confessed plant killer, or just starting out with your houseplant collection.

It has stylish foliage with long slender, tough leaves. It will be very happy in a shady corner, and can tolerate a certain amount of neglect.  It's good to wash the leaves often to keep the foliage nice and glossy. 

Plant Care Tips:

  • Light: Prefers bright indirect light, avoid direct sunlight. Happy in low light spaces too and is very tolerant of darker corners
  • Watering: Keep soil moist and evenly watered during spring/summer, less so in the Winter. This plant can tolerate irregular watering too
  • Feeding: Feed every 1-2 months during growing season
  • Temperature: Happy in normal household temperatures, clean leaves often too
