Cast Iron Plant (Aspidistra elatior) is a lush and leafy houseplant; that is as tough as its name implies. These houseplants produce dark green leaves that are fountain-shaped and cascade down as they mature. Aspidistra is a low-maintenance and hardy evergreen perennial that can thrive in a wide range of conditions.

When growing Cast Iron plants indoors, make sure to give it a well-draining potting mix, a pot with excellent drainage holes, and let its soil dry between watering. This houseplant does perfectly in low light conditions grown indoors and outdoors. If you are new to houseplants, this is an excellent beginner plant because it is nearly indestructible.

Cast Iron Plants prefer to dry out almost completely between watering. These houseplants do not grow well when they are in standing water for too long. In fact, Cast Iron plants that receive water too frequently will not survive because their roots will rot. If you are unsure if you should water your plant or not, wait a few days before doing so.

How do I fertilize my Cast Iron Plant?

How do I fertilize my Cast Iron Plant?

We recommend that you use an all-purpose fertilizer on your Cast Iron plants. Only feed your houseplant during their growing season, which is typically spring and summer. Once winter arrives, stop fertilizing your houseplant. Doing so will ensure you do not overfertilize them because, at this point, they have entered their dormancy period.

What is the best type of soil for my Cast Iron Plant?

What is the best type of soil for my Cast Iron Plant?

Cast Iron plants prefer well-draining soil conditions and dry out between watering. Any regular potting mix that includes sand will work well for your potted Cast Iron plant. When planting outdoors, these plants prefer not to go into clay soil, as it holds moisture and compacts easily.
