How to care for your Aspidistra

LIGHT: Medium to bright indirect light. Some early morning and/or evening sun is fine, but avoid strong direct sun. Will tolerate lower light conditions.

WATERING: Water thoroughly then allow to dry out almost completely before watering again. Avoid waterlogging.

HUMIDITY: Easy-going. Will be happy in most rooms in the home.

TEMPERATURE: Tolerates lower temperatures than many foliage plants (7-26°C). Avoid draughts.

FEEDING: Does not require much feeding. Use half strength liquid feed every 3-4 weeks in spring and summer, less in autumn and winter – and only if plants continue to actively grow.

GROWTH: Slow growth rate. Can reach up to 1m in height.

TOXICITY: Safe for pets and people.

OTHER: Use a soft damp cloth to clean leaves or give plant an occasional gentle tepid spray down to remove dust.
