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 Peacock Plant

Getting the balance right when it comes to irrigation is key for peacock plants. If the leaves are starting to curl up this can be a sign of underwatering. Too much water can cause root rot. These plants like consistent and even levels of moisture and many enthusiasts use a moisture meter to help them gauge when the plant needs watering. Although these plants still need watering during the winter, they do like to have a rest period, and the frequency should be reduced considerably. Distilled water or some captured from rainfall is generally considered a better option compared to getting it from the tap. Peacock plants are sensitive to fluoride, and it can result in the leaf tips turning brown. The water should be lukewarm or room temperature too. It can shock the plant if it is overly cold.

Peacock plants do not like intense, direct sunlight. Too much sun can cause the patterns and colors to fade. Filtered light conditions are recommended, but these plants can also grow in full shade, although this can slow down growth significantly.

Low humidity levels can lead to browning or curling leaves. Misting is beneficial and, if you are concerned your home environment may be too dry, it could be worth investing in a humidifier.
