I came across Oxy Plants by chance, whilst searching for a Bird of Paradise deal. I've had a minor delay with the order, however John and the Oxy team were very responsive and even sent another plant along - and they look goooorgeous, very healthy! 🥰🌿 Parcels were very well-packed also, no damage to the plants or the white pots (also beautiful and high-quality). I definitely plan on shopping with them in the future and recommend the experience!

Fantastic plant - an Areca Palm - at a fantastic price. Finishes off our bedroom redecoration perfectly. Can’t fault the service we received, next day delivery and the plant is amazing! It can sometimes be a gamble buying plants on line but we were blown away with the plant we received, it’s huge, healthy and beautiful. Definitely had the wow factor and we’d definitely recommend Oxy-Plants!

Love my plant!! I bought a Areca Palm - 140cm and it's perfect. It looks amazing in our bay window and looks exactly how it looks on the website. I've seen some bad reviews on here but my experience has been great. Buying plants online is tricky and this is my first time buying houseplants from Oxy and am very pleased with the service.

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.

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 Bird’s Nest Fern

Water when the top third of the soil has dried out throughout the year. If the plant gets wilting, greying of leaves, little to no growth, distorted or crispy growth and foliage decline. Then the plant is or under-watered or is in a too light/hot spot. If the plant starts wilting, yellowing leaves, soil mould, leaf spots and a rotten crown then the plant is or over-watered, gets too little light, has lacks drainage or incorrect soil and possibly got root rot. If you don’t have anything to water with, why not try our BRAND NEW watering cans?

Put this plant in a brightly lit spot away from any direct light during the spring and summer. Excessive exposure during this time will negatively affect the plant in the likes of sunburn and dehydration. Put the plant in autumn and winter on a spot with morningsunlight for an hour or two per day.

This plant likes average room humidity. Over-misting and poor air circulation may cause powdery mildew or botrytis. If you have nothing to mist with, we have the perfect solution! Try our water mister.

Birds Nest Fern likes loose, rich or peat-based mix soil.

You really don’t need to worry about fertiliser with this plant. Equally, if you’ve got your heart set on giving it some, you’ll want a nitrogen heavy fertiliser as this will ensure a lush bushy growth.

Not common to get pests but watch out for spider mites, mealybugs, scale, thrips, aphids vine weevils and root mealybugs. If this becomes a problem, simply treat it with some of our neem oil!

Repotting isn’t too much of an issue with the bird’s nest fern as it won’t grow too much from the time of purchase. Simply, have a look at our range of of stone plant pots and pick which one you find nicest!
