Cast Iron PlantCast Iron Plant (Aspidistra elatior): 15-20", This tough house plant earned its common name during Victorian times when gas lighting was first introduced indoors. The gas gave off fumes that were poisonous to most indoor plants, killing them. The one house plant that survived was the cast iron plant. It is grown primarily for its foliage. The long, upright leaves are dark green and grow 15 to 20 inches long. Forms a dense clump at maturity. Tolerates very low light and is very adaptable, growing well in a wide range of temperatures. Even a sunless, north-facing window is adequate light for cast iron plant. Its ability to tolerate low light makes it a good choice for areas of the home where other plants won't grow. A live plant in a 4-inch pot - $16 each or 3 for $45.60 - You save $2.40!
