-Aspidistra comes from the family Lilaceae. This is a houseplant that is easy to grow, and almost without any requirements. It originates from the hilly parts of China, and some call it the poor palm because it tolerates great carelessness about care.


-As for this plant, it can be kept in all places in the house, even the darker ones. It would be best not to expose it to direct sunlight (if the leaves have brown and fried parts, it means that there is too much direct sun). It tolerates temperature changes, but a temperature of 18-24 degrees suits it best. It can be taken outside in the summer, and in the winter it is best to be in a closed room that does not go below 10 degrees. Withstands drafts, dry air and dust. It is better to have less moisture, because it does not tolerate a large amount, and the leaves start to turn yellow to split and crumble. It is best to cut the damaged parts with scissors. As for pruning, they are pruned only in the parts of the branches where the flowering zone is. In the spring, it is recommended to remove thin shoots that have grown during the winter. At the end of March, you can prune unbranched branches to form a denser canopy. In autumn, this plant sheds its leaves.

When it comes to watering in the summer, abundant watering is needed, but water must not remain in the mat because, as we stated, it is sensitive to moisture. Do not water it in winter. You can wipe the leaves occasionally with a wet cloth, but not with chemical additives, but with plain water.


-For planting, use a mixture of ordinary flower soil, fibrous soil, peat and black soil. Transplant only after 3-4 years by transferring the plant to a larger pot in the spring.


-Aspidistra is very easy to propagate by dividing the roots in late spring or early summer. When it is taken out of the ground, you should carefully shake the soil, and then divide it into rhizomes, so that each rhizome has 2 to 4 leaves. They are planted together in compost but not in oversized pots. Water the transplanted plants carefully until they take root and get used to the new rules. As for top-dressing, use fertilizer for houseplants every two weeks during the period of intensive growth.


-Excessive amount of water, especially cold, can affect root rot

-If there is too little water, the leaves will dry and bend

-In a dry and warm space, Aspidistra is attacked by a red spider that settles along the jugular vein
