Aspidistra is an easy house plant, which will gladely accept rather dark, indoors positions. It has narrow leaves that are bright to dark green and spectacularly speckled with golden spots. Aspidistra minutiflora ‘Leopard’ are kept for its foliage, but it does flower with peculiar blue-green flowers, speckled with purple and appear just at soil level.
We ship only healthy (in pot) growing plants. We carefully remove the soil and wrap the roots in humid sterile coconut peat. Then we gently pack the root ball in a plastic bag. After that, we wrap the plant in newspaper and then in a strong cardboard box.
