Tillandsia xerographica

+ Water +
Soak your Tillandsia Xerographica once a week in a bowl of water for 10 minutes each time. You can also mist your plant with a spray bottle 2-3 times a week if it needs more water between the soakings. Tillandsia Xerographica absorbs water through its leaves instead of roots. So flip them upside-down when you give them a bath. Gently shake off any excessive water from the center of the Xerographica after each watering. Place your air plants somewhere with good air circulation to dry them completely within 4 hours of watering. MAKE SURE your Xerographica dries completely within 4 hours or it may develop root rot. Do not put them under the sun or near heaters/AC units as intense heat and cold temperature can damage the plants.

+ Light +
Tillandsia Xerographica likes bright, indirect light. Display your Xerographica somewhere near the window where they can get some indirect light during the day. If you don’t have natural sunlight coming in, office fluorescent lighting would do the job too. Just avoid direct sunlight since the plant can get burnt.

+ Air +
Tillandsia Xerographica does best in warm environments between 50 – 90 F. It needs good air circulation and some humidity as well.
