Elastic band tied around roots. Dead after 1 yearVerified ReviewerFirst, this is a beautiful plant. It's good value for the size and it was a great cat-safe choice for us. We followed the care instructions closely (placed in a bright and sunny area with a minimum temperature above 12°C; watered sparingly), but after about 6 months we noticed leaves yellowing and eventually branches dropping off. This seemed to be consistent with symptoms of overwatering, although we were watering even less frequently at this point. Eventually I checked the root ball, and saw that it had been sold to us with an elastic band tied around the roots, which was suffocating the plant. I removed the elastic band but the damage was already done, and just over a year after purchase the plant has now sadly fully died. I'm disappointed that I didn't notice sooner, because I think the plant would have survived if I'd only known to check the roots earlier, so I'd advise others to be aware!2
Nice at firstVerified ReviewerOnly had the plant under 3 months and it was lovely at first and looked very impressive but despite only being very lightly watered ( As advised instore ) and the soil not being wet at all the trunks are one by one dying so the poor plant is starting to look sorry for itself and I think it will be dead very soon. It is definitely not overwatered ( No more wet than when bought ) so I believe the problem was there when purchased and has only come to light when it was taken home. Shame as they aren’t exactly cheap and are a great looking plant.3
Fabulous plantVerified ReviewerLovely exotic plant at a very reasonable price. Looks fab in my bedroom.5
No goodVerified ReviewerIt dying inspite of good compost, sunlight and water :-(. It started with one stem and now rest all are dying. Wasted money.1

Great bushVerified ReviewerHave bought one of these before and it grows absolutely massive. Just give it regular water and light.5
Beautiful money treeVerified ReviewerI was a bit disappointed with the trees in store as they all looked a bit scruffy and most were leaning to one side a bit. Brought this one home and have managed to straighten it out. It is growing new leaves and looking much healthier.4

Our take on plastic

Plastic is a key material for IKEA and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.

Only recycled or renewable plastic

Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.

Phasing out single-use plastic

Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.

PET and PP, our most commonly used plastics

Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.

Clean and safe

IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
