Sometimes called “King of the Air Plants,” the Xerographica stands alone, with a star shaped form, bright minty green color, and curling leaves. Perfect as an accent piece on a shelf, in a glass vessel as a table centerpiece, or in a large terrarium, the Tillandsia Xerographica is a stunner. Naturally growing on the crooks of trees in jungle climates, air plants provide an easy way to bring a bit of the tropics into your home, and can even flower when they reach maturity.

*The term ‘air plants’ is the common name for Tillandsias, a type of Bromeliad, because they don’t need to be planted in soil. In the wild, deserts of Central and South America, the southern United States and the West Indies, Tillandsias colonize objects such as rocks and trees by clinging on to them with their roots.
Air plants are epiphytes and need no soil because water and nutrients are absorbed through the leaves. The roots are mainly used as anchors.
