Fully deserving of its common name, Cast Iron Plant, the aspidistra is extremely resilient and has a wonderful ability to thrive on very little care. The fact that it also copes with pollution gives rise to its alternative name Bar-Room Plant.

The aspidistra is an elegant foliage plant with tough, leathery leaves, perfect for a shady corner where other plants may fail.

A firm favourite with the Victorians, the Aspidistra elatior is an excellent choice for the modern home. Their graceful outlines will add a cool, sophisticated tone to any room. Smaller plants are ideal in a pot to compliment the surrounding décor. Larger plants make a bold, confident statement when stood on the floor.

Horty Hints

The Cast Iron Plant prefers well-draining soil, so don't let it sit in a puddle for too long!

Fight the Mites! Cast iron plants are susceptible to spider mites and scale! If you notice white dotting on the leaves, there could be a pest problem. See our pests guide for help.

Wash the leaves occasionally to remove accumulated dust.
