This air plant flowers with a beautiful orange-red stem and blueish-pink petals! This variety of air plant is especially forgiving for beginners!

Best Locations For Growing Harrisii Air Plant

This plant can withstand full sun but prefers bright indirect or filtered light. These plants are great for a countertop to display their beautiful blooms. Because they are not toxic, you don’t have to worry about keeping them away from pets or children. A great plant for a bedroom or bathroom.

Harrisii Air Plant Sunlight Requirements

The Harrisii air plant grows best in bright indirect or filtered light. A countertop that receives 4-6 hours of natural light each day is the perfect location. Place your Harrisii near an east-facing window to give it morning sun and afternoon shade. You can also try placing it a few feet away from a south-facing window. You can add a sheer curtain to your south-facing window to filter the sunlight—while this variety can take some direct sun, it prefers indirect sunlight.

Harrisii Air Plant Care

The Harrisii air plant is known for being especially forgiving to beginning plant owners. Just make sure it receives the proper sunlight and water. You do not need to put your air plant in soil—a terrarium, shell, hanging or wooden display holder will do just fine while showcasing this beautiful plant.

Watering Harrisii Air Plant

No soil is required for your Harrisii. Just soak it for up to 30 minutes once a week. Make sure to let your air plant fully dry upside down before returning it to its container. If you live in a less humid environment, you may need to soak it a bit longer or more often. You can also water your air plant by spritzing it with a water bottle. Make sure to allow tap water to sit for 24 hours before watering your air plant. This ensures that any chlorine has evaporated.

Feeding Harrisii Air Plant

You can fertilize your Harrisii by using an air plant-specific or bromeliad fertilizer every few months. A regular, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer also works, but make sure to dilute it to 1/4 of the recommended strength. Just add the fertilizer to your water when you soak or mist your Harrisii.

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.
