For all the indoor gardening novices who need help keeping their leafy friends alive, we asked Carmen Devito of Groundworks Inc. and west elm Market’s Brooklyn Blend Potting Soil to create care sheets for 8 of her favorite houseplants. Use them to greenify your home this spring!
Name: The Cast Iron Plant (Aspidistra Eliator)
Water: Low (once every 2 weeks)
Since the Victorian era, Aspidistra Eliator has been one of the easiest houseplants to grow and care for. Cast Irons will tolerate the lowest light conditions and happily inhabit the spot for years. As long as you don’t over water, you will succeed. Elevate on a plant pedestal to fully appreciate its lustrous foliage.
A Note On Pets: Always check with your vet before bringing a new plant into your home.
