Remember the Aspidistra's in the windows.

Remember the Aspidistra Plants in the front windows of the old houses? I wondered why they was so popular because they were nothing special to look at
so I looked it up.
Victorian homes were getting new gas lighting installed which created fumes. Other flowers and houseplants wilted with the fumes but the Aspidistra's didnt. That's why Aspidistra's became popular.
