Small Tillandsia Xerographica Air Plant

Small Tillandsia Xerographica Air Plant


A popular species of bromeliad, the Tillandsia Xerographica air plant is native to many Latin American countries. They’re hardy, & require a weekly misting or 10-minute soaking.

The Tillandsia Xerographica makes an awesome houseplant.

They’re 4-5″ wide.

Xerographicas, also known as King Tillandsias, is a slow growing variety.  They have thick silver leaves that curl under, which gives them an impressive look. Xerographicas make great centerpieces & stand remarkable all by themselves.

Xerographicas come in all sizes.

The one sold here is small, but you can also shop for larger ones. Whatever works best for you!

  1. Do these do well in hot weather? Zone 9?

  2. Hi Nina – Air plants can take hot weather, just no direct sun. They’ll do much better in zone 9 south Georgia (humid) than zone 9 Tucson desert where I live. They’re epiphytes so they pull moisture from the air. Nell

  3. Saw a very large air plant growing on a tree in a swamp area of So. West Florida. Beautiful and in flower. I believe we are in Zone 9

  4. Yes, some grow outdoors in southwest Florida & are quite beautiful. Especially when in flower! Nell
