This plant will suit the newbies in the plant world or the ones who have no time, but want their house to be evergreen. Cast-iron plant (Aspidistra elatior) is an herbaceous perennial that has earned its reputation as a nearly indestructible houseplant. It has arching deep-green glossy leaves and is so undemanding that it survives neglect that would easily kill lesser plants. Cast-iron plant practically grows in the dark, making it an excellent choice for those difficult-to-fill areas in deep shade.
PLANT CARE :
- Keep cast-iron plants away from direct sunlight, which can burn the leaves. If you're using it as a houseplant, you can place it away from the windows or near north-facing windows. Outside, place cast-iron plants in a shady area that's away from direct sunlight.
- If your cast-iron plant is a houseplant, use potting soil with a compost base with a pH value between 5.5 to 6.5. Outside, the plant can grow in sandy or clay soils.
- Cast-iron plant is drought-tolerant, but it does need some water—just be sure not to overwater it, which can lead to plant death by root-rot. Let it dry out between watering, checking with your fingers to see if the soil is moist.
