GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Aspidistra elatior or the Cast Iron Plant belongs to the lily family and is native to China and Japan.
  • Once a very popular houseplant, it was a common feature of many a Victorian hallway, although its popularity has faded slightly since this period and is now less common in modern homes.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Feed an Aspidistra during the growing season about once every two or three months with a weak houseplant feed solution.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • When it comes to the light requirements for an Aspidistra it's very easy to get right.
  • Providing it isn't direct sunlight it can pretty much deal with any light it's given.
  • While difficult to kill generally, it won't survive sunshine (bright light is fine).
  • So aim for a north-facing window or a shady/bright position deeper into a room with other facing aspects.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • The Aspidistra's cast iron nature means it will deal with sporadic occasional watering easily and can work around dry soil.
  • This houseplant is not a cactus though, so to really thrive it does need a reasonable amount of water during the growing season, although you'll need to let it dry out between waterings.
  • If you've chosen a dark or shady area for it to live in, the need for water will be much less, so be careful not to overdo it as significant overwatering can be deadly.
