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 Spider Plant

Allow the top third of the soil to dry out in between irrigations, reducing this further during the autumn and winter months. As they’ll develop thick tuberous root systems to survive prolonged drought in the wild, it’s always best to under-water a Spider Plant rather than over-do it.

Provide bright, indirect light with a few hours of winter sun, but be sure to prevent over-exposure to the summer rays and don’t keep somewhere excessively dark

Rinse the foliage once a month to remove excess dust from the leaves

Keep the soil moist throughout, but allow the top inch of soil to dry between watering

Give your plant a boost with feritilizer fortnightly during spring and summer and once per month in autumn & winter

Repot annually and seperate your ‘spiderettes’ during spring. These make great gifts, or simply expand your collection

About Spider Plant

The Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum) is considered one of the most adaptable houseplants and the easiest to grow. This plant can grow in a wide range of conditions and suffers from few problems, other than brown tips. It is named because of its spider-like plants, or spiderettes, which dangle down from the mother plant like spiders on a web. Available in green or variegated varieties, these spiderettes often start out as small white flowers.

Common Spider Plant Issues

Browning leaf tips or edgesFinding the direct cause is somewhat tricky, as it’ll range from too much direct sunlight with too little watering, a much-needed transplant, over-fertilisation, or excessive fluoride found in tap water. Spider Plants must not endure more than three hours of on-peak sunlight, especially if the soil is kept too dry, as sun-scorch may arise.

Yellowing leaves – this is a tell-tale sign of too little sunlight or over-watering, which go hand in hand.

 

My spider plant has collapsed – If a spider plant has collapsed, but still appears healthy, it could be down to the lack of light. Again, situate it in a brighter location with no direct sunlight to prevent further stress.

The final issue is the surrounding temperature. Spider plants cannot tolerate temperatures below 10℃ (50℉) as their natural environment wouldn’t dip below this threshold during the year. Typical symptoms include the yellowing of leaves and foliage decline, along with a general deterioration of health. Remove the affected leaves and immediately present a location with an adequate amount of warmth. Avoid persistent droughts and intense sunlight to prevent further issues.

What do Spider Plants Clean from the air?

Spider plants are most effective in removing carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. The effective reduction of indoor carbon monoxide level helps in decreasing fatigue, headaches, colds, sore throats, and flu-like symptoms caused by CO exposure. Discover more about plant benefits.
