A classic houseplant, grown in British homes since Victorian times and incredibly tolerant of neglect! Photographed here in medium Blue Copenhagen Pot. Pet friendly.
Aspidistras are tolerant of shade and of occasionally drying out but they don't like bright summer sun so keep them off your south or west-facing windowsills. Wipe any dust of the leaves occasionally.
