The stunning and unusual Air Plant produces thick green almost needle-like leaves along a stem. With pink inflorescence that displays white flowers, this air plant can be shown as part of a collection of air plants or on its own. Requiring no soil, the Araujei Air Plant is certainly something a little different.

Best Locations For Growing Araujei Air Plant

The Araujei Air Plant will grow in any room as long as it receives enough light, but make sure it is not placed in harsh direct sunlight, which may cause it to dry out. Being such an unusual plant, you’ll want to grow it somewhere it will get noticed.

Araujei Air Plant Sunlight Requirements

This air plant requires bright, but indirect light to grow well. Near an east or west window is ideal. 

Araujei Air Plant Care

Requiring a warm environment, the Araujei Air Plant is best kept at a temperature between 50 to 80 °F with relatively high humidity. However, good air ventilation is key to keeping this plant healthy.

Dead, broken and browning leaves can be cut back with scissors as required; making cuts at an angle can produce a more natural look.

Watering Araujei Air Plant

On average, the Araujei Air Plant needs to be watered once to twice a week by submerging it in tepid harvested rainwater for 10 to 15 minutes. However, hotter conditions will require the plant to be watered more frequently or misted in between waterings. After watering, it is important to allow the Araujei Air Plant to dry completely, as any sitting water can cause rotting to occur.

Feeding Araujei Air Plant

Although not required, feeding your Araujei Air Plant can help promote flowering. A specific Tillandsia fertilizer should be used as per the manufacturer’s guidelines as over-fertilizing can cause damage to the foliage.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
