AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS !Bought a plant 70-90cm £34.99. when it arrived it was just below 50cm (£14.99). So they ripped me off for £20 and refuse to speak to me when I complained !

I bought a plant which was supposed to be 70-90cm tall, what I received was significantly shortly than this. I contacted the company and they appeared to have not read my email, and their response did nothing to rectify the situation. My order number is: 155991. I'll amend my review if they fix the situation, but until then my advice would be to avoid this company.

I really like the artificial plants I purchased from Oxy-Plants. They're excellent, and my spouse hasn't even realized they're not real.

Amazing Areca Palm. None of the stems were damaged in transit and all of the leaves seem to be in good order. Thanks Oxy-Plants.

Thanks Lucie for all your help! – I spoke to Lucie over Oxy-Plants Instagram as I was a little unsure which plants would be good for my office. She recommended a devil’s ivy for my bookcase and a swiss cheese plant for the corner of my room. It looks amazing, thanks so much!!!

I was struggling with what present to give my mum as a present this year. I opted for a poinsettia plant and she wasn’t disappointed. The plant is still doing well, even into January.

Sadly my bird of paradise plant died within a month (it was in an ideal spot for heat, light etc.). I emailed Oxy-Plants but never got a response.

Scam! Paid for £50 worth of goods and did not receive a thing after a full month! No response to email, DM or phone line (which kept going straight through to voicemail). PLEASE look elsewhere for your goods and avoid the headache that I have suffered!

The plant arrived covered in bird poo and many leaves were torn and damaged. The plant was also 45% smaller than described online.The customer service was terrible - I had 3 rounds of arguing for my customer rights for a refund. I was originally offered a mere 10% discount. Finally after quoting their own refund policy in my email they agreed to collect and refund the plant however this took some time. Will definitely tell my circle to stay away from using oxy plants.

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.

When we wanted some advice about the right plants for our office space, Oxy-Plants were the obvious choice. There was lots of useful information on the website, and the customer service was second to none. When we had a problem, they fixed it, quickly and efficiently. We love the plants and love the prices - delivery was easy and the plants well packaged.

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.
