Tillandsia, or more commonly known as air plants, are the perfect plant for someone who doesn't have a green thumb. Air plants thrive without soil and feed off of the air, making them one of the most low-maintenance plants out there.
The xerographica air plant is native to Mexico and Guatemala and has beautiful light green leaves that curl under towards its base. The leaves are thicker towards its center and as it grows, the ends curl. Since is leaves are thicker, it can withstand a little more direct sun compared to other air plants.
Bright, indirect light is best. Avoid direct sun and dark shady areas.
There are two ways to water air plants, misting and soaking. A good rule of thumb is to mist the air plants 2-3 times a week in the summer months, allowing the plants to completely dry in between each watering.
How often you water the air plant will differ based on your climate. If your climate is dry, you may have to water it more often. If your climate is humid, you may find yourself watering it even less.
You can also soak the plants in water about once a month for 10 minutes or so. It's important to completely dry the plant before putting it back in its place. You can dry out the plants by hanging it upside down or patting it dry. To avoid root rot, make sure the base of the air plant is completely dried out.
