Cast-iron plant (aspidistra elatior)
This plant is practically nuclear explosion resistant – it loves shade, doesn’t mind dust, handles both soggy soil and droughts and doesn’t care about fluctuating temperatures. We wouldn’t be surprised if this plant becomes the last living thing on earth.
We even googled ’how to kill a cast-iron plant’ and cutting off the stems won’t necessarily do the trick. Heavily overwatering every day for a month might though.
Besides being practically unkillable it's also lush and lovely, bringing that perfect minimalist Scandi feel we all love and adore anywhere you place it. Especially in the large terracotta pot – yum. As always, this plant comes with a care card. Not too much to read on it but the illustration is fab.
