Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

For new plantings
1. Dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant's container
2. Place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level
3. Back fill with dirt
4. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds
New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering.
Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.

Care Instructions
To take care of an Aspidistra plant, make sure it is planted in a well-draining potting soil. Place it in an area with bright, indirect sunlight and don’t let the soil get too dry, as the plant needs consistent moisture. Water deeply, avoiding the center of the plant, once a week in summer and every three or four weeks in winter. Feed the plant with liquid fertilizer every month during spring and summer. Prune away any dead or yellowing leaves as necessary.
