Blooming Tillandsia Xerographica Air Plant Image via WikipediaTillandsia xerographica is a species of bromeliad that is native to southern Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. It is a slow-growing epiphyte, meaning it doesn’t require any soil to grow – it simply bonds to rocks and trees in nature. Average temperatures in its natural habitat range from 72°F to 82°F, with around 60% to 70% humidity, so try to keep your air plant in a similar environment. The silvery gray leaves are wide at the base and taper to a point making an attractive, sculptural rosette. The flower, or inflorescence, grow on a large center stem and range from red to purple and can last for months. Check out this incredible blooming photo from Wikipedia!

Since air plants are epiphytes, they don’t need to grow in soil – they just hang out anywhere there’s bright light and suck nutrients out of the air. They’re really easy to care for – just soak them in a bowl of clean water for 30 minutes each week and they’ll be happy. You can check out our blog article on how to take care of air plants.
