Xerographica Air Plants

Tillandsia xerographica Tillandsia xerographica
Air plants, or tillandsia, are a favorite at Urban Garden for their versatility and easy care. The xerographica are unique specimens because of their thick, whorled, gray-green leaves and often large size. The xerographica generally need much less water than most air plants.
Bright, indirect light
Remove the plant from its container and water under the faucet every 14 days. Allow to dry completely, upside down, before placing it back in its container.
Prefers 50°-85°F
No soil is needed: these plants receive their moisture and nutrients through their foliage. Watering this variety of air plant too much may cause it to rot from the inside out.
Safe for pets
Difficulty Level: Moderate
