ABOUT
Tillandsia Xerographica, The brilliant tall flower spike appears in pinks and reds with chartreuse bracts and long tubular flowers in reddish purple. Silvery green stiff leaves with a rough texture, weep forming an open habit. Air Plants are so simple to grow and care for. Simply spritz occasionally and walk away and are an easy way to create a beautiful display of nature in your home – no soil required. These are very healthy plants.
The growth rate, bloom and leaf color of Tillandsia Xerographica will vary greatly depending on soil type if used, sunlight, temperature and other factors. Lower leaves are often trimmed prior to shipping to reduce transpiration and travel stress.
CARE
Tillandsia Xerographica are very easy to grow plants that require little care. They add a wonderful accent to any outdoor space, garden or patio. In very cold zones Tillandsia Xerographica can be brought inside for the winter months.
When you receive your new Tillandsia Xerographica, there is no need to worry about planting, ever. Your new plant can be enjoyed indoors by simply placing it in a filtered sun location and misting it on occasion.
CONTAINER SIZE
Tillandsia Xerographica grow very well with no container. Whatever location you choose, be sure to keep Tillandsia Xerographica out of direct sun and mist occasionally.
SOIL
Tillandsia Xerographica enjoy moist, well drained moss. The use of soil will generally cause the plant to rot.
GROW ZONE & LIGHT
Best outdoors if grown in Zone 9-11, find your zone here. This Tillandsia Xerographica requires 65-80% sunlight. Depending on your location filtered sun is best. In the northern end of their grow zone Tillandsia Xerographica plants should be brought indoors or protected during the winter months. The patio zone is 4b-11 which means the potted plant will flourish over the summer months in colder zones but must be brought inside before frost.
BEFORE YOU PLACE OUTDOORS
Here at the nursery these plants are grown under 20-40% shade cloth. If you place directly in full sun you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or two to avoid stress.
WHAT IS THE SHIPPING SIZE
All Tillandsia Xerographica for sale will vary in size. In the spring, plants are often smaller than plants shipped in the fall.

DO YOU SHIP PLANTS ANY TIME OF THE YEAR?  Sorry, no we don't.  Most of the plants offered are very tropical and require temperatures above 40º at all times. On occasion some orders may be delayed if the weather conditions in your area warrant that the shipment be held. This helps to ensure the survival of your new plant. During the winter months when we are no longer shipping plants, our growers spend their time researching new species and new growing techniques to provide you with the most unique and superior species of plants available anywhere.

HOW LARGE ARE THE POTS THE PLANTS COME IN?  Most plants  designated with a (-2g, -8, -6, -4,) will arrive in a large 8 inch, standard 8 inch, 6 inch, 4 inch growers pot respectively, the color and style of these pots will vary. We are very proud to introduce our new, reusable, recyclable deep cells, 7 to 14 inches deep and 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Products growing in these cells are easy to transplant and allow for deeper roots, faster growth and are designated with a (-7, -9, -14). Several of our larger landscape plants are grown in 10 inch and 8 inch deep tree pots wich are 3 to 4 inches in diameter and are designated with a (-tc3 or -tc4).

ARE SHIPPING OPTIONS AVAILABLE?  No. Sorry,  At the present the only shipping option available is UPS Ground ®. UPS ® has proven themselves in the industry and have become the carrier of choice for our family of growers. With reasonable rates, careful handling and on time service you can be sure that your shipment will arrive ready to be enjoyed.

HOW CAN I ESTIMATE THE ARRIVAL DATE?  To ensure proper delivery  most orders will take 1 - 3 weeks. The delivery time can vary depending on the supplying growers work load and/or seasonal holidays. Rest easy knowing that your plant will not ship until it is inspected, watered, bagged and properly packaged.

CAN ORDERS BE SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE US?  Presently we only ship inside the lower 48 states.  With the current USDA regulations regarding shipment of live plants, our family of growers are restricted to and governed by the guidelines for certification within the lower 48 states only.
