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 Prayer Plant

Water when the top quarter of the soil has dried out, reducing this further in autumn and winter. If the plant gets crispy or distorted new growth, curling leaves, crispy or dry patches and yellowing leaves.  Than the plant is or under-watered or is in a too light/hot spot and possibly think about a repot. If the plant rapidly gets yellowing leaves, leaf spot disease, stem collapse and plant death. Than the plant is or over-watered, gets too little light, has lack of drainage or incorrect soil  and possibly got root rot.

This plant 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 morning sunlight for an hour or two per day.

This plant likes a stable humid environment. Therefore you can use a humidity tray and/or mist the leaves every now and than. If the surrounding saturation is too low or the heat too high, its leaves may start to brown over and curl, especially in direct sunlight. Those in either a bathroom or a dark location must not be over-misted as too much moisture will result in powdery mildew and leaf-spot disease.

Prayer plant likes nutrient-rich, well-draining soil.

You can use houseplant feed fortnightly in spring and summer and once a month during autumn and winter. Directly applying a ‘ready to pour’ feed into the soil without a pre-water beforehand will burn the roots, causing yellowed leaves and stunted growth.

If using fertiliser is new to you, read our “How to Fertilise Your Houseplant” page!

Check the plant occasionally for spider mites, mealybugs, scale, thrips and aphids. If you think your plant is suffering from a pest or disease, take a look at our Pests and Infections page!

We recommend you re-pot your prayer plant every spring. For this, you will need some soil substrate, new compost, and a larger nursery pot.

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

Originating in the rainforests of Brazil, the prayer plant is part of the Marantaceae family and is noticeable by its vibrant green leaves with flashes of neon green, red, and burgundy.
