    Incredibly popular with the Victorians, this aspidistra is an elegant and tolerant plant that will cope with some neglect - hence to common name of cast iron plant. It can withstand drought (provided temperatures are not too high) and pollution - and only needs repotting occasionally. This makes it a great choice for the novice who wants something that looks nice, but is really easy to look after.

  • Home care: In an ideal world, this plant will want a spot that is well away from direct sunlight, with a good amount of water in summer - but much less in winter. Wash the leaves occasionally to keep them free of dust (this can be done by popping it under a cold shower), and try to maintain cool temperatures above 7 - 10°C in winter. Pot on every 4 - 5 years using a good quality potting compost.
