Tillandsia xerographica is a dry-forest epiphyte in the bromeliad family, Bromeliaceae. As an epiphyte, it grows on top of tree branches and pulls all the water it needs from the intense morning fogs of its native habitat. These fogs naturally dry up by midday, and the plant collects nutrients from the desert dust that blows around to sustain itself. Like other bromeliads, it grows from a central rosette, radiating out its leaves. This growth is slow, taking years to reach its maximum 3 feet in diameter. Tillandsia are also monocarpic, meaning that once it flowers it dies, but not before producing pups (baby air plants) at their base.
