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 come with plants only, no nursery pot is needed.

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.

Pro tips

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 completely enclosed containers. Avoid letting water sit between the leaves for very long periods of time after watering, as this can lead to them rotting at the centre.

Care Guide

How to take care of Tillandsia Xerographica Air Plant

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

Soak them in a bowl of room temperature water for an hour every week. Shake excess water off afterward and lay your plant upside down on a towel in a bright spot to dry.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Introducing the Tillandsia Xerographica, an air plant that embodies the strength and resilience in simplicity and independence.

The Tillandsia Xerographica, also known as the King of Air Plants, displays broad, silvery-green leaves that twist and turn, creating a magnificent rosette shape. Much like its bold aesthetic, this plant implores us to seize life with grace and resilience, bending and adapting to the winds of change.

Native to the semi-desert regions of Central America, the Xerographica air plant needs no soil, drawing life-sustaining nutrients from the air. This ability to thrive in harsh environments teaches us that we, too, can rise above challenging circumstances with strength and determination.

When it comes to watering, Tillandsia Xerographica prefers to be soaked rather than misted, teaching us that even the most self-sufficient beings appreciate a deep refreshment from time to time. In the ebb and flow of life, remember that it's essential to pause, rejuvenate and nourish our minds and bodies.

As your Tillandsia Xerographica matures, it will blossom, producing a stunning inflorescence that reaches for the sky. Just as this plant reaches for the sun, it inspires us to strive for our aspirations, no matter how high they may be.

Welcome the Tillandsia Xerographica into your space. It's not just a plant; it's a testament to the resilience, strength and adaptability inherent in all of us. Let it serve as a daily reminder of the power within you to rise above any situation.
