Xerographica is a species of Tillandsia, which is in the Bromeliad family. Tillandsia are epiphytic and grow on the tops of trees in the wild where they are exposed to bright sunlight and harsh weather conditions. There are over 50 species of Tillandsia and Xerographica is notable as one of the largest in cultivation. Xerographica known as Tillandsia xerographica features dramatic silvery leaves that form a large circular ball shaped rosette.
This plant is notable for its large size and the unique globe shape of the adult plants, with adults growing up to two feet wide. Due to their globe shape Xerographica are often grown unmounted and simply hung by a wire. Xerographica can also be grown mounted to a branch with other species of Tillandsia for a more naturalistic look. Xerographica make great houseplants and like other Tillandsia are widely grown by many plant collectors.
