I came across Oxy Plants by chance, whilst searching for a Bird of Paradise deal. I've had a minor delay with the order, however John and the Oxy team were very responsive and even sent another plant along - and they look goooorgeous, very healthy! 🥰🌿 Parcels were very well-packed also, no damage to the plants or the white pots (also beautiful and high-quality). I definitely plan on shopping with them in the future and recommend the experience!

Fantastic plant - an Areca Palm - at a fantastic price. Finishes off our bedroom redecoration perfectly. Can’t fault the service we received, next day delivery and the plant is amazing! It can sometimes be a gamble buying plants on line but we were blown away with the plant we received, it’s huge, healthy and beautiful. Definitely had the wow factor and we’d definitely recommend Oxy-Plants!

Love my plant!! I bought a Areca Palm - 140cm and it's perfect. It looks amazing in our bay window and looks exactly how it looks on the website. I've seen some bad reviews on here but my experience has been great. Buying plants online is tricky and this is my first time buying houseplants from Oxy and am very pleased with the service.

I”d ordered two gorgeous pots and some ferns to put in them, sadly one pot arrived split and John, without hesitation, resent a new one. I am delighted with the results and the ease of communication with oxyplants.

Thanks Lucie for all your help! – I spoke to Lucie over Oxy-Plants Instagram as I was a little unsure which plants would be good for my office. She recommended a devil’s ivy for my bookcase and a swiss cheese plant for the corner of my room. It looks amazing, thanks so much!!!

I was struggling with what present to give my mum as a present this year. I opted for a poinsettia plant and she wasn’t disappointed. The plant is still doing well, even into January.

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.

How To Care For Rubber Plant

Less is more with Rubber Plants, so only water the soil once the top half dries out, feeling the pot’s weight for confirmation. Reduce this in the colder months to replicate its dormancy period and to avoid over-watering. Don’t have anything to water with? Try one of our watering cans!

Similarly to most other houseplants, ‘bright, indirect light is best for quality growth. Specimens placed in darker locations will lose their patterns (if variegated), along with the increased chance of root rot and stalled growth.

This plant thrives in a stable, humid environment, so mist fairly frequently for great success. If you don’t have anything to mist with, invest in one of our luxury water misters.

It may be wise to invest in well-draining soil for your Ficus Elastica. Rubber plants really hate presiding in water-logged soil!

Give your rubber plant a boost during spring and summer by adding plant fertiliser fortnightly. We recommend you use some well-balanced, slow-release, fertiliser. Something like Miracle-Gro Push Feed All Purpose.

As with any plant, your Ficus Elastica may become susceptible to pests and little critters such as mealybugs, scales, and spider mites. If this occurs, we have the perfect solution. Simply order one of our unique natural insecticides (neem oil) and treat until resolved!

If your rubber plant is on the smaller side (0-30cm) take a look at your plant’s roots every six months. If the roots are touching the sides of your nursery pot, it is time for a new planter! If your plant is well established (80-100cm), check the roots every other year and follow the same procedure as with smaller plants.
