This plant likes to tell you if it’s unhappy. If the soil is too dry, the stems will droop; this is their way of asking for more water. Give it a good drink, ensuring you give it enough to flow through the pot so the roots get a good soaking. It will be fresh and lively again within the hour. Just be careful not to overwater this leafy beauty by letting it stand in water too long. Overwatering can cause the leaves to discolour.
Cast Iron Plant, A.K.A The Aspidistra is extremely resilient. It has super hardy leaves and a willingness to be somewhat neglected!

Caring for a cast iron houseplant
Check the soil around every 1-2 weeks to see if they need a drink. If you see the leaves starting to droop, a drink of water will revive your Aspidistra. Keep out of draughts and away from radiators. Water sparingly in winter and more frequently in summer. Do not let the plant stand in water.
Cast Iron Plants can be placed in almost all light areas in your home however he isn’t a huge fan of direct/ bright sunlight as this will scorch the leaves.
Feed with a houseplant food one to two times per year will be enough to keep the plant happy.
