Excellent service and good quality plants. Items were dispatched very quickly, packaged well, and with good communication throughout. So far the plants look great and seem to be adjusting to their new home well.Can't fault at all, would recommend and will definitely be using again.

I usually don’t write reviewsI usually don’t write reviews, but this one was owed. Before purchasing my gorgeous Bird of Paradise I contacted the Company and got in touch with Cliah who went above and beyond to accommodate my request. Needless to say I received the plant in one day and is absolutely delightful. A very well deserved 5 start to them!

My Devil's Ivy plant arrived within a couple of days, very well packaged and totally healthy. Absolutely love it and the macrame hanger I ordered at the same time. Also, I made an email enquiry to oxy-plants and had the loveliest response. Such a positive experience, I strongly recommend this company for its efficiency and value for money.

How To Care For Areca Palm

Getting your watering routine right is paramount in the care of your Areca Palm. Aim to keep the soil moist, but not soggy. If your Areca is allowed to sit in water this can lead to root-rot and ultimately the death of your Palm.

Allow the soil to dry a little more between watering in winter. If possible, use distilled water – especially if you live in an area with hard water as the chemicals in the water can be damaging to Arecas.

Find a bright, indirect spot in your home which is warm and away from any cold drafts. Arecas are more shade tolerant than other indoor plants, but still want a brighter spot if possible to keep them in optimum health.

Areca Palms do prefer a slightly humid atmosphere, so will benefit from a misting every now and again. Consider purchasing a water mister to keep your palm happy year-round.

Areca Palms want organically rich, loose, free-draining compost. You can add perlite, bark or sand to help allow the water to drain away freely. It is also ideal if you can add stones to the bottom of your pot so the roots are never sat directly in water, which has drained away.

The Areca palm will need fertilising in spring/early fall but you won’t need to bother during late fall/winter as the palm is dormant during this time. Choose a houseplant fertiliser to suit your needs.

Indoor Areca palms can occasionally be vulnerable to common houseplant pests which cause foliage damage and discolouration so treat any infestation as soon as possible with an insecticide.

Repot your Areca every other year to freshen the soil and remove any fertiliser salt deposits that have built up in the container.
