Came infested with spider mitesLaura M.I keep lots of houseplants. I loved this Chamaedorea at first, but sadly after a couple of weeks it started dying. Guess what: it was infested with spider mites. (Because I'd never encountered spider mites before, I had to look them up. Although they can't bite people, they suck plants dry.) For the past few weeks I've been spraying the plant with a mixture of water, dish soap, and essential oils. While that's cut down the mites' numbers, they're still there, and still progressively killing the plant. Fortunately the mites have not yet spread to my other houseplants, so I'm thinking of composting the whole plant before the mites spread. Bummer. Lesson learned: always buy plants from my local nursery.1

Lovely plantCaronI didn’t realize until recently IKEA was selling live plants! This one is just absolutely beautiful...large, full, healthy and excellent value. For the price, it’s much better value than Home Depot or Lowe’s, and it’s doing really well in my home.5
5 years old and still going strongJason ScottI bought this at the Ikea store in Covina, CA. I live in southern California. I planted this in an urn for a shaded patio. This little palm is just beautiful. It loves the dark shady patio corner I have it in and has grown to about three feet tall. It fills in the corner well and looks so elegant. It lives full time outdoors on the covered patio and has done so well. The urn it's in has no drainage hole, so I am careful to just put in enough water where it's not floating in water. Once in a while some of the fronds die, but they are easy and quick to pull out and make the plant look beautiful again. I can't remind people enough that these thrive on LOW LIGHT. I had one of these before and tried to put it in a sunny spot and it just burned. These palms, also known as parlor palms just love a low light setting. I feed mine with the little push in food stakes you buy at the market and it's just green, bushy and lovely on my patio. The cold winters or the warm summers don't seem to bother it. If you live in Southern California you are sure to be able to grow this palm on a deeply shaded patio or indoors in a low light room. You can grow it in a bright room too, just so long as it doesn't get direct sun which will scorch the leaves. Light, filtered through a sheer curtain or a bright room with no direct light would be ideal. It's a beautiful little plant.5
Happy and Hearty Little PlantmandieluckThree of these were purchased at the Atlant IKEA eight months ago. They are are doing incredibly well and have fanned out in their pots from IKEA. While I cannot recall the name of the pots I believe they are 4 3/4 bamboo pots which have a plastic liner/tray inside the bottom of them. I highly recommend the bella palm. I water mine about once a month, fertilizing every other month.5

Sustainable life at home

Care thrives in green leaves

Did you know that if you take care of your plants, they’ll take care of you? We have long known that plants are an easy way to make your home more pleasant. But we also wanted to find out if and how they affect our health. We found answers to our questions in a study we carried out with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Plants are indeed good for our well-being. Our green friends can help us to be more creative and also reduce stress – care thrives in their green leaves!

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 plastics

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 plastics

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!
