As if Trade Joe’s hasn’t already blessed us with a plethora of Halloween decor from their plant section, they’ve added even more options in the recent days.

From Aloe-ween aloe vera plants to Spooky Trees—plus longtime favorites like the yogi skeleton air plants—there are so many options for you to choose from. We’ve rounded up the best Halloween plants that you *must* add to your cart during your next Trader Joe’s run.

Pumpkin trees

These trees look like something out of “Nightmare Before Christmas” that’s a great fall centerpiece in the making. While the trees are more like branches with tiny pumpkins attached to them, we can’t help but think of all the Pinterest-like ideas for how to use them. TJ’s Pumpkin Trees are priced at $7.99.

Aloe-ween Aloe Vera Plant

If you and Beetlejuice share a decorator, you should definitely pick up this $5.99 aloe vera plant. The black and white spider motif gives it a spooky yet adorable feel. 

Spooky Trees

Spooky Trees might be the most exciting addition to TJ’s plant section in recent weeks. These shrubs are outfitted with purple lights that make our cold black hearts sing. The Spooky Tree is $7.99 and fairly easy to take care of. All it requires is moist soil, indirect sunlight, and liquid fertilizer every month.

Cinnamon Brooms

These witchy additions can be found amongst the plant section in TJ’s stores. Starting at just $0.99, a cinnamon broom will have your whole place smelling cozy—not to mention some believe they ward off negative energy, which we all could use in 2020. 

Venus Flytraps

We’re totally getting “Little Shop of Horrors” vibes from this Venus Flytrap. They cost $4.99 and should be kept in very damp soil as well as indirect sunlight. While they might not be a true seasonal plant, their carnivorous habits give us the Halloween-esque creeps.

Yogi Skeleton Air Plants

These flexible little friends come in three different poses and house a low maintenance air plant. If you can get your hands on one of these $5.99 skeletons, they make a cool addition to any bookshelf or countertop.

Pumpkins and Gourds

Whether you’re looking for the classic pumpkin or a warty gourd, there are plenty of options at Trader Joe’s. Add these to your Halloween tablescapes and transition them for Thanksgiving with the addition of a cornucopia.


Mums are a quintessential fall plant, so if you’re not into the ghoulish-looking options, these might be calling your name this season. Trader Joe’s mums come in a few different sizes and range in price from $3.99 to $5.99.
