Although they are now widely available, at one time their popularity almost led these beautiful plants to extinction. Because of this, this is also a species protected by CITES, and cannot be harvested from nature. A birds-eye view of the Tillandsia xerographica shows its unique and impressive shape, its leaves curving in a giant sphere. It is easy to see why this is such a popular and coveted air plant. These round, cushion-y Tillandsia can range greatly in size and can grow quite large over time.
Epiphytes are plants that grow on another host or object such as a rock or tree, and use the host only for support (not to derive nutrients from). Epiphytic Tillandsia thrive by collecting moisture and nutrients from trichomes that are located on their leaves. These unique plants come in many different shapes and sizes, with some having very symmetrical leaf systems while others display wavy leaves that look almost alien in form. The structure of the plants can also widely vary, with some types having a more bulbous base and others more linear.
Putting them in front of a fan or somewhere with really good air circulation is highly advised, and will help reduce the chances of the plant developing rot or a fungus from staying wet too long. If you have neglected to water your air plant in some time and it appears to be “thirsty,” you can leave it to soak for a few hours, or even overnight. Many air plants will curl their leaves a bit when dehydrated, indicating that they require more water. Try to minimize the longer soaks to 12 hours or less.
