Description

Tillandsia Xerographica is a popular air plant among plant enthusiasts and is a stunning centrepiece of any collection. These plants have a unique appearance, making them easily distinguishable from other air plant species. They have large, open rosette leaves that curl back into a ball. The leaves will flush pink in good lighting, while dryer conditions will make the leaves curlier. The plant’s name comes from the Greek words “Xero” and “graphic,” which means “dry writing” or “dry painting”. Xerographica is also commonly referred to as the “Queen” of air plants and is popular in floristry or as the centrepiece of your collection.
