Couldn't fault their service or plant quality. I live in Northern Ireland and it is extremely difficult at the moment to have a plant delivered it came in good time and plant was in excellent condition will use them again. I got a few peace lilies for an addition to my aquarium set up and doing great! Thanks

I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

I ordered the 3 plant bundle. John contacted me as there was an issue getting hold of the blue pots so I chose a different colour. Plants arrived promptly, although one had a damaged pot. John sent a replacement along with a bag of compost so I could repot it. Great communication, good value. Highly recommended.

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!
