T. Cotton Candy (T. stricta x T. recurvifolia) big (0.6m)

T. xerographica, King of Airplant small (0.6m)


T. Xerographica

A stunning epiphyte that is characterized by both its large size and simple yet elegant light silvery green color. The leaves are stiff and velvet-like, extending outwards at the base where it is wider, and curling inwards as it reaches the tip where the leaves get thinner. When it is kept dry it forms tighter curls, thus creating a beautiful rosette. While frequent misting causes the curls to become looser which then gives the plant a fuller look and extends the leaves outwards more than when the curls are tight. A T. Xerographica could grow to about 30-40 cm in length in around 6 years and possibly even 1 meter with around 12 years of maintenance. It takes years for these plants to fully grow, but they are able to bloom large, eye-catching flowers in shades of light or dark purple and pink, with bracts that are a pinkish red color on the inside, then gradually become a yellow to green ombré towards the ends all of which perfectly compliment the leaves’ silvery tones.
