Description

The Tillandsia Xerographica is a stunning air plant. It has light, mossy green coloring, and gently flocked leaves. A slow-growing epiphyte, the Xerographica gets its name from the Greek words xeros ( dry) and graphia ( writing ) .This stately and large plant is characterized by its full and striking spherical shape with silvery light green leaves.

As the Xerographica grows, its arms extend and curl and wrap around itself. Its strong leaves are wider at the base and grow into skinny little arms and its spiraling arms will keep it mostly self contained in size.

In its native habitat, this species is pollinated by hummingbirds. Locally, it is visited by sunbirds.

Environment

It likes warmer, humid conditions but will do just fine in a dryer environment with regular misting. Do not allow water to collect in the leaf bases as this will cause the plants to rot. Soak the plant for around 30 min in water every week .

Good ventilation is a must. Feed with dilute liquid fertilizer fortnightly.

Landscape Uses

This unbelievably beautiful Air Plant is the perfect Tillandsia for ornaments, cups or bowls of any kind, or to simply sit on its own on a coffee table or a desk.

Air plants are unique - they Don't need soil, absorbing water and nutrients through scales on their leaves. Although caring for air plants is really easy, but if not done right it can quickly lead to the plant drying up.

Air plants need regular sprinkling of water on their leaves. However once a week, air plants need to be submerged in water. Take a big enough container and fully submerge your air plant for 3-4 hours. Once soaked, you need to dry them off completely! Hence shake them and put them on a soft towel. Place them under a bright spot for 2-3 hours so that there is no excess water on it. Make sure to dry them or air plants get a root rot very quickly.

Bright filtered or indirect light is ideal for air plants. Morning sun is healthy for the plants, however afternoon sun can quickly burn the leaves. Use a fertiliser once a month in the water when you soak the air plants to keep it healthy.
