Bromelia Tillandsia xerographica green

Tillandsia xerographica
Tropical decoration!
This plant normally grows on trees in the jungle. So it is nice to also attach the plant to a piece of wood. That's something very different to being in a pot! Before it flowers, the Tillandsia ionantha goes bright red. To be able to flower again, the plant needs direct sunlight. Other plants of this species are a bit more difficult to get to bloom. The Tillandsia needs very little care. Spray the plant weekly. These plants prefer moderate sunlight. So do not put them in full sun. Now just find a nice place, and Bob's your uncle!

Planting+

Spray the leaves of your plant with rainwater immediately upon receipt. If you do not have any rainwater to hand place the pot under the tap and trickle some warm (room temperature) water over the plant, the water should not be cold.
Stand the whole arrangement in a warm, fairly light spot, but keep it away from direct sunlight. The lighter the spot, the longer the plant will stay red.

Care+

Tillandsia is an easy to grow house plant requiring little or no maintenance. Spray the plant regularly, at least once a week, preferably with rainwater at room temperature. In the summer it will appreciate being stood outside on the patio during a summer shower.
Feeding the plant is not strictly necessary but if you want it to grow bigger, would certainly help. A liquid feed is recommended in this case - just spray over the plants 4-5 times a year. There is a special Tillandsia feed but you can also use standard house plant fertiliser, diluted 1:4 with rainwater. A temperature of between 16° and 24°C is perfect for Tillandsia.

Extra+

Exceptional and unusual, Tillandsia can be found growing on the branches of giant trees in tropical rainforests. The high degree of humidity there is sufficient to keep the plant thriving - water and minerals are absorbed through the leaves of this pretty little plant.
Tillandsia roots are more for support than sustenance and are used to hold the plant to the tree. This lovely tillandsia can tolerate the dry air of our living rooms. Tillandsia and other bromeliads are often used in a terrarium or palludarium.
