Tillandsia Xerographica

$20 $25

Tillandsia Xerographica, aka Xeros or the King of Air Plants, is a species of air plant that is native to southern Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Silvery light green in colour, Xerographica is one of the more rare varieties. Its thick, wide leaves form a tight rosette of curls with the thin, spiky new growth sprouting from the center adding a beautiful contrast in form.

They do not need to see the sun directly. But filtered sunlight through glass is fine. Keep them away from intense direct sun.
The minimum light requirement for them is 0 - 3 feet away from the nearest light source. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool right next to a window.
Soak them in a bowl of room temperature water for an hour. Shake excess water off afterward.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist regularly. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. It doesn't mean they'll die if they don't get enough humidity, they may get some crunch edges or yellow rims if they don't have enough humidity but will survive.
Increase humidity with increased light to avoid dry out. Make sure they are in an area with good air circulation, do not put them in terrariums or enclosed containers.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
