About your plant

The plant pictured to the right is fresh from its nursery and indicates what you are going to receive. Your plant will arrive in a standard pot (any planters displayed are for illustrative purposes only, so will not be included with your order). Delivering directly to your door, our trusted tropical nursery provides optimal growing conditions for each plant, so you can rest assured that they will arrive in good condition.


Plant Theory has sustainability at its heart. This means that every plant will be delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. The intuitive box design is plastic free and will keep your plant safe on their journey to your home.

All Plants Supplied In Nursery Pot
Please note, all of our house plants arrive in a nursery pot as standard. You can find a more permanent home for your plant in our wide range of
indoor plant pots.

How your order will arrive
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.

The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).
