Care Instructions

Cast Iron Plants, are native to the subtropical forests of South Japan. They've evolved to grow in dark environments in the shade of larger trees.

Their ability to tolerate just about any conditions has earned them the near-unkillable status (hence the nickname 'Cast Iron' Plant).

Like a neglected middle-child, this plant will survive with very little attention. Their resilience and tough-guy vibes have made them popular in East Asian households for centuries for this reason.

We're bringing them to the Middle East now 💪
Oh yeah, and did we mention they're pet-safe too?

😎 Light: Most light conditions
The more its gets, the faster it will grow. However, avoid direct sunlight (especially outdoors) as this should scorch its leaves.

💧 Water: Every 2-3 weeks
Cast Iron Plants like their entire soil to dry out completely between waterings. To check if your Cast Iron Plant is ready to be watered, stick your finger into the soil as deeply as possible. If you feel ANY moisture, at all, then wait longer! If it feels completely dry, then it's time to rewater your plant: slowly water the soil so that it's completely saturated - you'll know it's fully saturated when water drips out of the drainage holes on the bottom of the nursery pot.

To be extra-sure, you can also stick your finger through the bottom of the drainage holes underneath its nursery pot, to feel for moisture.

Remember, the more light your plant gets, the more you'll need to water it. Similarly, the less light it gets, the less it will need.

Tip: When checking your soil for moisture, make sure to test different parts of the soil, in case you come across a wet pocket.


⛏️ Difficulty: Low maintenance

This plant can be fairly picky in terms of light, but if placed in a bright spot and watered when needed, it'll thrive!


🐩 Pets: Completely safe

This plant is completely safe and non-toxic to pets.

Aspiradas | Aspidistras Indoor Plant | Cast Iron Plant 0.8 - 1.0m

Aspiradas | Aspidistras Indoor Plant | Cast Iron Plant 0.8 - 1.0m commonly known as the cast iron plant, is a popular choice for indoor plants, Aspidistra is known for its durability and ability to tolerate low light conditions. It earned the nickname "cast iron plant" because it can withstand neglect and survive in conditions where other plants might struggle

Plant Care

Light Requirements

While it can tolerate low light, Aspidistra prefers moderate to low indirect light. It's a great choice for areas with limited natural light, such as offices or rooms with north-facing windows.

Watering

Aspidistras prefer to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's important to allow the top inch or so of soil to dry out before watering again. In general, they are more tolerant of underwatering than overwatering.

Soil 

Use well-draining potting soil for Aspidistra. A mix designed for indoor plants or a combination of potting soil and perlite works well.

Temperature and Humidity

Aspidistras are comfortable in typical indoor temperatures. They can tolerate a range of humidity levels but generally prefer moderate humidity.

Fertilizing

Fertilize sparingly, especially during the growing season (spring and summer). Too much fertilizer can lead to leaf burn.

Pruning

While Aspidistra doesn't require frequent pruning, you can trim away any yellow or damaged leaves to maintain its appearance.
