Product Details

Highlights

Tillandsia xerographica is a giant, wide-leaved air plant that makes a striking centerpiece on its own. This plump variety does not tolerate over-watering; mist every 2-3 days and submerge completely in water once a month. A good shake after watering will also help to prevent rot. This silvery variety can take on rosy tones with direct sunlight in the morning or late afternoon. As a xerophytic air plant with dense trichomes, this variety needs more sunlight and airflow and less water than green, mesic varieties.

Air Plants (Tillandsia) - Care Information

Tillandsias are low-maintenance plants that require no soil, just plenty of water, sunlight, and airflow. There are three main watering strategies: mist generously 3-7 times a week, submerge completely 2-4 times a week, or soak for 1-2 hours once a week. To prevent rot, shake excess water out of crevices and give enough airflow for the plant to dry within 4 hours. Air plants need all the indirect sunlight they can get and should only be kept in low-light rooms temporarily. They can tolerate direct sunlight in the early morning or late afternoon, and it can even bring out brighter pigments in the leaves. Arrange them with sand, sea glass, rocks, or shells, but avoid absorptive materials like soil and moss.
