The Air Plant Xerographica (zero-grafika) is among the largest in the Air Plant family and is sometimes referred to as the King of the Air Plants. Xerographic as have elegant silvery gray leaves that begin broad and tapper taper to a point. The minimum size we ship is 6 inches wide for a tightly curled plant, with the average being 8 inches wide. As the Xerographica settles into its new home and grows it can exceed a foot in width. Their rosette appearance makes them popular centerpieces. Their unique features and origins make them great conversation pieces. Air Plants (Tillandsia) get their common name from the fact they don’t require soil. They are epiphytes, which attach to other plants or trees for support. Their roots are only used to anchor themselves and are normally removed during cultivation for aesthetics. They are not parasitic, instead they gather micro nutrients from the air and water in structures called trichomes on their leaves. As the plant dries the trichomes take on a white powder look. After watering the plant will return to a vibrant green. Air Plants must dry fully between watering because they are susceptible to rot if left wet to long. Xerographic as come from dry forests in higher elevations of Central America. They also make their home higher in the forest canopy than most Air Plants so they prefer a little more light and a little less water than others. Air Plant Xerographica care is pretty simple. Upon arrival give your plants a heavy misting. Our plants are shipped on the drier side to avoid rot while in transit. After an hour or two turn the plant upside down to remove any water that collected at the base. This could lead to rot. After this you can mist the plants every three days to a week. Their needs will vary with their environment, but in a few weeks you will be able to read your plant like a book. Just remember the best thing you can do for your plant is to let it dry completely between watering. Air Plants like as much filtered sunlight as they can get. Xerographic as are especially light hungry. They do like sleeping as much as we do so at least 6 hours of darkness per day will work and 10 would be ideal. As tempting as it is, use your Hinterland Trading Air Plant Fertilizer sparingly. Just a few pumps every other week when watering. As a special treat you can collect rainwater for your Air Plant, the nutrients in rainwater and pond water are more abundant than in the air or tap water, but this is not necessary.
