The Tillandsia Argentea originally grows in dry areas in Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba and Jamaica. This Air Plant grows as a single, as well as in clusters of multiples of the same species and has very thin silver(ish)-leaves. The Tillandsia Argentea barely has roots and mostly grows on rocks and trees. The leaves of this air plant grow in a loose way and the spike of the plant grows purple flowers from the centre.
The Tillandsia Argentea is very easy to care for and to use in bouquets, arrangements and other decorational purposes for example. This air plant likes an airy and a bright/light environment the most. Besides that, it likes to be sprayed once or twice a week, depending on the humidity.
The Tillandsia xerographica is a beautiful and relatively large species within the various Tillandsia species. It is also called the ‘King of Air Plants’. The gray / silver colored leaves that grow from the heart towards the butt, makes it a really exclusive and decorative plant to have and use. Like the Tillandsia Harissii, the Xerographica is covered by the CITES certificate. This means that the species is protected in Central America and therefore only a limited amount of these plants may be imported.
The Tillandsia xerographica can be easily used in wedding bouquets, wreaths and in table decoration for example. The leaves of this plant can also be used separately for decoration, both dry and wet. During the flowering stage of this plant, a large red and green flower grows from the heart.
However, the Tillandsia Xerographica is being shipped before this stage from the farms in Central America to the Netherlands
The Tillandsia Fasciculata is mostly known for its bigger size within the family of Air Plants. It is also referred to as the giant airplant or cardinal airplant. This air plant species originally grows in Central America, Mexico, parts of South America and even Southern states within the United States. The Fasciculata could also grow a very beautiful red/purple flower, whereas we get these air plants before the flowering stage to our main location in The Netherlands where the cultivating continues. We are happy to provide you with this unique Fasciculata air plant, as it comes in two different sizes.
