Xerographica - "The Mother of Air Plants" Known for its silvery green, moderately fuzzy foliage, and leaves that curl. Xerographica can grow very large for air plants and produce a tall spike bloom that ranges in color from yellow to orange.
Care: air plants thrive in bright, indirect light, not direct. Bathe the plant once every week or two by submerging it in room-temperature water for 5-10 minutes (bathing in the morning is ideal, so that plant will be completely dry by evening). Remove the air plant and shake as much water out as you can, then flip the air plant upside down to dry in a bright area with good air circulation. You can mist the plant in between baths if it's in a particularly dry room, or it's getting loads of bright light.
