Light conditions: Tillandsia xerographica prefers bright indirect light, but can also tolerate bright direct light and medium direct light. Rotate periodically to keep its shape. If you notice leaf burning move the plant away from direct sunlight.
Watering: If your plant is in a high light environment, submerge your tillandsia in either distilled water or water that has been left out overnight once every two weeks for 15 minutes. If your plant is in a medium to low light environment, do the same but every 3 to 4 weeks depending on your humidity levels. Be sure to flip your plant upside down to dry after waterings to ensure that any excess water doesn't collect in the center of your plant as this can cause rot.
Pets: While this plant is non-toxic, we don’t recommend that pets eat your plants.
All plants are different! There can be variations in colour, variegation, growth, and maturity. While most houseplants have the potential to produce flowers, it is rare that they will do so in an indoor environment.
We recommend keeping new plants isolated for ~7 days to monitor for pests, regardless of where they're from.
If your plants were shipped to you, unwrap them and remove wood shavings from soil (if any). They maybe thirsty, so give them a drink of water if needed.
Whether you live around the corner or across the country, moving is stressful for plants. Don't be alarmed by leaf loss, browning or yellowing, or a little light wear & tear!
