Air plant - Tillandsia xerographica small
Our thoughts about this species
This air plant is the smaller version of Xerographica, which also known as 'The queen of air plants'. It grows a bit faster than other species and the greyish, curly leaves make them so special and beautiful. A lot of people don't believe at first that this is a living plant because it is quite thick and hard by touch. It is native to the desert areas of South-America and it requires the least amount of water of all species - however, it is good to water this plant a little bit more often than the large Xerographica - around 2-3 times a month. Always make sure that it has enough time to dry upside down after the watering - it ensures that the plant takes only as much water as it needs! This plant prefers a bright place and endures also direct sunlight!
