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

Lovely plants in really nice pots. Well packaged and delivered. Even received a phone call from John to say that he thought my pot choice would be too big and would sub a smaller size when the order was sent out, he was right.

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 Chinese Pepper Bonsai Tree

This indoor houseplant loves to be in moist soil. When its looks in need of a drink, be sure to give it a good watering. Every couple of days (during the summer months) should do. In colder months, reduce the amount of watering to weekly (perhaps, even bi-weekly).

The Chinese Pepper loves a warm climate that is sheltered from the wind. From Autumn to Winter, place this indoor houseplant in a sunny spot away from any draughts. In the Spring and Summer months, move it out of any direct sunlight as you won’t want its leaves getting scorched!

This bonsai tree loves an occasional misting. As it’s native to the subtropics of Asia, it’s definitely built to withstand a bit of rain. If you’re giving your bonsai a mist, be sure to give the leaves a wipe as well. This will help to remove any build up of dust and maximise photosynthesis!

Whilst bonsai’s love a drink, they hate sitting in standing water. As such, be sure to place your bonsai in a well-draining soil, with plenty of structure to it. Perlite, Vermiculite, or Pumice can certainly be your best friend here!



Your safest bet with any bonsai tree is to use a bonsai-specific fertiliser. Have you tried Baby Bio Bonsai Food? This helps maximise the nutrients your bonsai needs for sturdy roots, a girthy trunk, and a beautiful foliage.

If using fertiliser is new to you, read our “How to Fertilise Your Houseplant” page. This is still relevant for bonsai lovers as well!

Bonsais are not particularly susceptible to pests and diseases. However, in the winter months, be sure to keep an eye out for Spider Mites. If your bonsai does become affected, be sure to purchase some of our neem oil!

If you think your plant is suffering from a pest or disease, take a look at our Pests and Infections page!

Bonsai’s will naturally grow to the size of their enclosure. If you do not wish for your bonsai to grow, don’t repot. However, if you’re wanting to re-pot, check your bonsai’s roots bi-yearly. If they’ve reached the bottom of your plant pot, then it is time to re-pot!

Wondering how to repot your bonsai tree? Take a look at our repotting guide. It has all the information you’ll need!

About Chinese Pepper Bonsai Tree

Native to the subtropical regions of East Asia (China, Korea, & the Himalayas), the Chinese Pepper Bonsai (Xanthoxylum Piperitum) is a perfect tree to begin your bonsai journey! Literally translating to “tree in a tray”, a Bonsai is not a houseplant, but a symbol of an entire philosophy. Maintaining a bonsai quickly becomes a way of life, helping teach its owner the value of discipline, care, and aesthetics.

If you love houseplants that bloom in the summer months, then this bonsai may be for you. Not only does the Chinese Pepper Bonsai bloom beautiful yellow flowers, but it also produces dark spiced fruit in more mature trees. Whilst this isn’t the quite the pepper you would season your food with, it is this fruit that gives it the “Chinese Pepper” and “Sichuan” name.

As with any bonsai tree, the Chinese Pepper will really reward an owner who knows the value of pruning. If this is your first time buying a bonsai, make sure you own a watering can, wire, and some secateurs. These will help you when it comes to training and pruning your bonsai. Furthermore, if you’re a novice at bonsai care have a look at our “Bonsai Care Essentials” article. It’s a great place to start!chinese pepper bonsai tree indoor uk
