About Perlite

Are you wishing to maximise growth in your indoor houseplants? One of the best ways this can be done is to use Perlite in your soil. Perlite is a volcanic glass that helps your plants to breath by maximising air flow through the soil. Covered in tiny holes and air compartments, this compound is helpful with: aerating soil, water retention, drainage, and preventing soil compaction.

Perlite is suitable for use with most houseplant we sell, and is a beneficial  addition for any shrub, hanger, palm, or cactus. However, spider plants and peace lilies love a moister soil. So air on the side of caution with adding perlite to those two soils!

Even though perlite is a man-made product (heated artificially to 1600 degrees C), it’s completely non-toxic and safe to put in any indoor, or outdoor soil.

Are you a plant propagator? Perlite is also a great choice if you’re wanting to propagate, or repot your plant. If you want your cuttings to develop strong roots, place them in a perlite mixture for 2-3 weeks straight out of water.

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.
