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.

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!
