ASPIDISTRA (Air Purifying Plant)
COMMON NAME: Cast iron plant
BOTANICAL/SCIENTIFIC NAME: Aspidistra elatior
LIGHT: A brightly lit room is good but not essential. They're fine with low levels of light, but it's best to keep them out of direct sunlight which will damage the leaves.
WATERING: Water once the top one inch of soil becomes dry. Water less during winter and do not over water. Over watering to the degree that the soil becomes soggy for a period of time - can cause the plant to die. The Aspidistra elatior is drought tolerant so if it misses being watered even for a month it will look unwell but be right back with you once care and water is given again.
SOIL: Most well draining potting mixes will suffice and good drainage holes at the bottom of the pot is advised.
HUMIDITY: Average house humidity is advised but the cast iron plant can tolerate dry air conditions.
FERTILISER: Once a month, high in Nitrogen to enhance evergreen leaves.
SIZE: Height 60cm. approximate
NOTE: Actual product may vary due to product enhancement.
