The Cast Iron Plant (Aspidistra elatior) has a well deserved reputation for being easy to grow. It thrives even in low light situations and doesn't mind some neglect.

For a welcome green gift for anyone - green thumb or not - try a Cast Iron Plant. It has a well-deserved reputation of being very easy to care for. It can grow in an office setting or low light setting.

It's nice to have another living creature co-habit your space, isn't it? And the Cast Iron Plant asks for very little in return.

Give it your worst, and it will limp along for you. It's seriously hard to kill this plant.

Now, if you want to up your game, try to give it ideal conditions. A happy Cast Iron Plant is handsome, with long arching strappy leaves and glossy dark green color.

It will grow best in a north-facing window. Give it a small drink once a week. Pat the soil with your fingers to see if it's wet or getting dry. If it's getting dry, it's time to water.

Cast Iron Plant would love to grow in average potting soil. In a perfect world, it would like the soil to be slightly moist at all times. Not dripping wet, but barely moist.

Small, pale purple flowers may appear at soil level in spring, but usually do not form on houseplants.

Now, we all know that life is messy. Vacations happen. You forget. The Cast Iron Plant will forgive you.

Order one for yourself, or for a friend today! It's a wonderful way to say I'm thinking of you.
