Unusual spotty Aspidistra, which was a a gift from @HG01 earlier this year. It’s already starting to send up some new leaves after I repotted into a narrow deep pot. It also had flowers down at soil level but they have now gone. The roots are big 👍🏼 #aspidistra #castironplant #aspidistradaibuensisyuliyummy #aspidistra-daibuensis #aspidistradaibuensis

It’s a #houseplant at the moment but I’m planning to put it outside in a sheltered spot for summer. They are actually quite hardy as long as it’s not too wet apparently - a few plant collectors are now growing them in their gardens all year round

What a wonderfully tonal composition of medium-dark leaves against a slate-gray background. The subtle lighting brings out every detail and highlights the spotting even more. Bravo 👏🏻 📸 🌱

Thank you very much @mn-5a , I took a few photos in different spots and concluded it was hard to pick up the spots, so I tried it against my living room wall and it looked perfect 😊

Huh. First time to encounter the name "Yuli Yummy". This may be the cultivar I have, ha ha

😄 it’s name is extraordinary! My friend who gifted this holds the National UK collection of Aspidistra elatior and cultivars, and one other species I can’t remember, but he collects others too. I think there are a few spotty ones, I’m not good at identifying them but he runs a FB Aspidistra group. He went to US last year for research into Aspidistra at Plant Delights Nursery, have you heard of them? @misternatureboy
