The Fuchsii air plant is a popular beginner’s plant that is perfect for the living room, bedroom or even your bathroom.

Air plants are known for their easy care—no pot or soil is needed! Just soak or spritz your Fuchsii once a week!

Best Locations For Growing Fuchsii Air Plant

This plant can go anywhere in your home that gets bright, filtered or indirect light. It is perfect for the bathroom, living room, kitchen or bedroom! These plants are not toxic, so they’re safe to keep around pets and children.

Fuchsii Air Plant Sunlight Requirements

The Fuchsii air plant can grow in bright, indirect light. Place it in a location that gets 4-6 hours of natural light per day. This plant will thrive near an east-facing window that receives morning sun and afternoon shade. You can also place it a few feet away from a south-facing window, but be careful that the plant does not receive direct sunlight, as that can scorch the leaves. You can add a sheer curtain to your south-facing window to diffuse the sunlight.

Fuchsii Air Plant Care

The Fuchsii air plant is easy to take care of, as long as you provide the correct type and amount of sunlight and proper watering. No pot or soil is needed.

Watering Fuchsii Air Plant

Air plants require no soil. To water, simply soak the plant for up to 30 minutes once a week. Hang your air plant upside down to fully dry before returning it to the container. If you live in a drier environment, you may opt to soak your air plant a bit longer or more frequently. You can also spritz your air plant with water during the week. If using tap water, allow it to sit for 24 hours to let chlorine evaporate.

Feeding Fuchsii Plant

To fertilize your Fuchsii air plant, use an air plant-specific or bromeliad fertilizer a few times a year. You can also use a regular, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer at 1/4 of the recommended strength. You can add the fertilizer to the water you use to soak or mist your plant.

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.

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.


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!


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.
