Care Instructions

Talk about a hard plant to kill. Tillandsias don’t even require soil. They drink and eat through their “leaves.”

  • Once wet, more water doesn’t do a thing. Wet ‘em and leave ‘em. 
  • But be sure to shake off excess water. Do not let water pool in the tillandsia (this will cause rot)
  • To water, simply mist with water bottle about once every week or two.
  • These xerographicas are large enough that you can submerge in water for an hour if it's easier, once every two weeks
  • If you missed a cycle, don’t worry, and don’t try to make up for it.
  • Watering too often can make the center area rot, so don’t overfuss.
  • If the tips of leaves are “pinching up” and you haven’t watered recently, it’s time to water.

Size Info

This is just a very rough estimate. In addition to diameter, the large tillandsia is "fuller" and "taller" than the medium. (Ditto for the extra large.)

  • Medium: 6-7" diameter
  • Large: 7-9" diameter
  • Extra large: 9-11" diameter
