This versatile plant can even be grown as a bulletproof houseplant, and it's especially suited for homes and offices that don't receive much light. They are fairly undemanding and will survive through neglect that would easily kill a lesser plant. They will practically grow in the dark. They're excellent for those difficult to fill areas in deep shade and pet-friendly.


Using cast iron plants in landscaping is common as a ground cover under trees. You can also use it as a background plant in your flower bed or along with azaleas for a nice in-between filler plant. They feature upright, strappy leaves that grow from an underground rhizome. The plant has small purple flowers that only appear near the soil surface and are hidden its foliage.

Closely related to the lily, there are eight species in the Aspidistra genus. All are native to Asia. Of these, only one is commonly grown, A. elatior, which features upright green and dark leaves. A. elatior variegata is a variegated version that has attractive white striping on the leaves. The variegated version is less hardy than its darker cousin.

Cast iron plants may be tough, but they have their preferences. Here's how you can ensure they thrive:

  • Light: Semi-shade to bright, but will not tolerate direct sun.
  • Water: Keep soil continuously moist throughout spring and summer, and reduce watering in the winter.
  • Temperature: Thrives at temperatures from 60 F to 80 F. Does not like extreme cold.
  • Soil: A well-drained potting mix.
  • Fertilizer: Fertilize regularly during growing season with liquid fertilizer, or use controlled-release twice during growing season.
