Sometimes called "King of the Air Plants," the Tillandsia 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.
• Light: Medium to bright indirect light
• Water: Submerge in room temperature water once a week for 5-10 minutes. Turn plant upside-down after soaking to allow excess water to run off. Mist periodically
• Considerations: Ensure Tillandsia dry completely within 3 hours after soaking - good air circulation is vital. To encourage blooming, use an epiphytic fertilizer. Reduce watering in winter

Perfect accent on kitchen island
I turned to Pistils when one of our large air plants (Tillandsia xerographica) died. The new plant arrived unharmed and healthy. After a short soak, it seems right at home here. It’s made our island centerpiece even better!
