Aspidistra Elatior - Cast Iron Plant
21cm nursery pot & approx 85-90cm tall
Light: Bright indirect light to partial shade. Will tolerate most lighting conditions except strong sunlight.
Water: Water once top 60% of the soil has dried out but will tolerate drying out slightly more
Humidity: These tend to like normal to slightly higher humidity. Keep the leaves green and lush, and avoid brown tips, by misting every few days.
Fertiliser: We recommend feeding your plants every other watering during spring and summer, we tend to dilute fertilisers by 50% in water
Top care tips:
- We recommend gently watering from the top until water is coming out of the drainage holes, but make sure its stopped dripping before putting into your decorative pot
- Increase humidity through misting, a pebble tray or electric humidifier
- Most plants are happiest in temperatures between 18 and 25°c, always try to stop temps falling below 15°c
