Having captivated botanists with its indestructible nature, it is unsurprising why this Aspidistra has been named the Cast Iron Plant. It can be placed in any type of light (however strong sun isn't ideal), so will make an astoundingly robust choice for the beginner grower. Their tall stems and smooth oval leaves also form an elegant silhouette that will add a modern touch to any room. Why not have it accompanying a Brake Fern for a contrasting display of textures? To keep this Aspidistra elatior content, you should provide a watering when the top two inches of soil feels dry. It will also benefit from having its leaves misted every few days.

Sustainability is at the heart of our ethos and we have done everything we can to ensure that all of our products are as sustainable as possible, be it our plastic free, fully recyclable packaging, GM free seeds, or ethically-sourced compost.
Your plant will be happy in bright light that is preferably indirect, otherwise the leaves could be scorched. A little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum. The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally, but try not to come into direct contact with the plant.
