Air Plant Xerographica Large

$ 36.00

Most tillandsia air plants are accustomed to humid environments, but xerographica plants are able to tolerate relatively dry air. Don’t assume, however, that xerographica plants need only air. Like all plants, tillandsia plants need a certain amount of moisture. Xerographica air plants can also handle more sunlight than their tropical, shade-loving cousins, and they will struggle without adequate light. However, direct, intense light may sunburn the plant. Natural light is preferable, but you can supplement with artificial lights. Be sure to leave the lights on for 12 hours every day.

Submerge your xerographica plant in a bowl of water every week or two. Decrease watering to once every three weeks during the winter months. Shake the plant gently to remove excess water, then place it upside-down on an absorbent towel until the leaves are thoroughly dry. Avoid direct sunlight while the plant is drying. Heating and air conditioning can cause the plant to dry faster. Watch for withered or wrinkled leaves; both are signs the plant needs a little more water.

Air plants are eligible for domestic shipping.
