Cast Iron Plant care
If you want your Aspidistra Elatior to grow fast and big, provide it a bright light far from direct sunlight or its leaves will burn.
The amount of water is directly related to the amount of light it receives, so in low light conditions and in winter you'll have to just water it a bit or its roots will rot and cause death.
Aspidistra does handle dry air and low humidity but does best with some air moisture. So it's easy to combine Aspidistra with other plants.
Fertilize your aspidistra once a year if it is in low light conditions and once every three months otherwise. Do not fertilize it in winter
Don't place your Aspidistra Elatior in direct sunlight.
Water your Cast Iron Plant only when its soil has dried almost completely.
Aspidistra Elatior are good office plants because they survive low light conditions even artificial.
Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust.
