The Cast Iron Plant is As Hardy and Indestructible as Its Name
The cast-iron plant (Aspidistra elatior) is named for its ability to survive a wide range of conditions. If you’re looking for low-maintenance greenery that can survive low light, low humidity, irregular watering, and temperature fluctuation, the cast-iron plant is THE plant for you. A native of the forest floors of Japan and Taiwan, the cast-iron plant gained popularity in homes in Europe and America during the Victorian era, and it has gone in and out of fashion repeatedly since then.

Plants are figuratively and literally the breath of fresh air we need in our homes after a long day, and they happen to look really chic while doing it.
