I’m Aspidistra elatior but some people call me the Cast Iron Plant – that’s because I’m so tough. That doesn’t mean treat me bad, it means if you forget about me I won’t die but seriously, look after me. You should know I was also used in the title of a George Orwell book – ‘Keep the Aspidistra Flying’ – so I’m a big deal.
Approximately 50cm tall in a 12cm plastic pot. I'm also available in a 15cm 60cm tall and 17cm pot and 100cm tall
I like it average temperatures and being watered regularly from spring to autumn.
I’m pretty easy going and tolerant but I don’t like direct sun or being re-potted too frequently.
LOOKING AFTER ME
I can handle dry air but please wash my leaves occasionally.
LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN
I’m great with pets and children, whoo!
