Xerographica is the “King of the Tillandsia”. The plants origins are in the deserts of Southern Mexico, Guatemala, San Salvador, and Hondorus. In the desert it relies on heavy morning dew for moisture and sunny days that dry the plant completely during the day. You cannot over water the Xerographica, but be sure to dry out well between waterings. Set upside down to remove all water from the crown. Water at least once a week. A beautiful plant that will last many years. It is possible it will bloom and take on color for up to a year.
