Tillandsia Xerographica are becoming a huge trend for their modern appearance and ultra low maintenance requirements.
They are natural from Mexican forests, where they grow on the tallest trees. As other air plants, Tillandsia Xerographicas do not need water to survive, as they have adapted to get all nutrients they need from the air and humidity around them.
When indoors, they need some care to thrive: such as misting and a bi-weekly shower. It is recommended to soak them in water at least twice a month, to imitate the humid environment from their naturel habitat.
Lighting: Bright, indirect sunlight.
Watering: the frequency of misting or soaking depends on the environment they will live at. In drier climates, it is recommended to mist and soak more often. But in high humidity spaces, you may need to do that less frequently.
Environments with the use of Heater or Air Conditioners should be considered dry environments and so watering needs to be more frequent.
Best Spot: Shaded area that does not receive full sun. Air plants may be happy in bathrooms due to its high humidity, as long as proper light is provided.
Temperature: 50-90 degrees F. Best indoors if in cold areas.
