Lei care & Handling

Lei care & Handling

The proper care can help your lei last longer.  Almost all orchid lei styles, as well as ti leaf, maile lei should last about 3-7 days after arrival. For Pikake & Tuberose lei they are more sensitive and have a shorter shelf life.


Helpful Tips for our Leis and loose Blooms

  • Avoid temperatures below 45° F and do not place in the freezer.
  • A good temperature range is between 45 ° F – 55 ° F. 
  • Once you receive your shipment, quickly unpack the leis carefully.  Put the Lei(s) in a plastic grocery bag or a Ziploc bag. 
  • If you have ordered a large bulk shipment make sure you have a proper place to store them.  Such as a walk in refrigerator or similar.  
  • Another way to store the leis is with a cooler with ice in it. Place a hand towel or newspaper over the ice so the leis do not touch the ice.
