Aspidistra, also known as cast iron plant, are the perfect plants for beginners as they are (almost) impossible to kill. You can keep them in the light or you can keep them in the shade, and if you forget to water them for a week or two (or three or four) they will still be fine! This plant has built up its tolerance for poor conditions by growing in the shade of large trees in China and Vietnam.
Light This plant is a shade-lover. Nothing more than dappled light.
Water This plant prefers drought to moisture. Splash about a cup or two of water on this plant every two weeks in the spring and summer, and every three weeks in the winter. Don't let it sit in water.
