About the Cast Iron Plant

The Cast Iron Plant is another indoor vintage gem, gaining popularity in the Victorian and Edwardian era where it was commonly displayed in hallways alongside other finery. The Aspidistra Elatior is commonly known as the Cast Iron Plant, a name it acquired thanks to its ability to survive extreme fluctuations in temperature, drafts and the poor air quality that was commonly preset in the gas-lit homes of the period.

This indoor plant can survive any and all household conditions, from shadier corners to colder, draftier rooms. A perfect indoor plant for beginners or interior designers looking to add life to a room without much additional responsibility.

Your Aspidistra currently lives in a 17cm nursery pot. 

They are roughly 70cm from pot base to leaf tip and in the right conditions and with proper care can reach a size of roughly 80-100cm in height.

Whilst we maintain the best standard possible, plants can vary slightly from the photograph from season to season.

Care Guide

These house plants will thrive best in bright rooms, but are more than capable of surviving in shadier areas of your home.

Cast Iron Plants prefer to be in moist, but not sodden soil. Water when the soil has almost completely dried out; once per week roughly in bright rooms or once every two weeks in darker corners.

These indoor plants are very slow growing. As a result they do not need to be repotted often. Mature Cast Iron Plants can survive in the same pot for 3 to 4 years at a time.

Aspidistras are considered to be non-toxic to humans and pets and are part of our Child & Pet Friendly Collection.

Your Aspidistra Elatior - Cast Iron Plant can reach a height 100cm meters with time and the right care and attention.
