Additional Information

This stylish arrangement draws its inspiration from the legendary sea monster known as the Kraken. The legend is thought to have started with sightings of giant Octopus. We thought a Xerographica (large Air Plant variety) set in an acrylic Clam shell would be a fitting tribute and the perfect nautical decor. The Air Plant Xerographica (zero-grafika) is among the largest in the Air Plant family and is sometimes referred to as the King of the Air Plants. We use a small (5-7 inches in the Kraken. Xerographic as have elegant silvery gray leaves that begin broad and tapper taper to a point. As the Xerographica settles into its new home and grows it can exceed a foot in width. Their rosette appearance makes them popular centerpieces. Their unique features and origins make them great conversation pieces. Air Plants (Tillandsia) get their common name from the fact they don't require soil. They are epiphytes, which attach to other plants or trees for support. Their roots are only used to anchor themselves and are normally removed during cultivation for aesthetics. They are not parasitic, instead they gather micro nutrients from the air and water in structures called trichomes on their leaves. As the plant dries the trichomes take on a white powder look. After watering the plant will return to a vibrant green. Air Plants must dry fully between watering because they are susceptible to rot if left wet to long. Xerographic as come from dry forests in higher elevations of Central America. They also make their home higher in the forest canopy than most Air Plants so they prefer a little more light and a little less water than others. Air Plant Xerographica care is pretty simple. Upon arrival give your plants a heavy misting. Our plants are shipped on the drier side to avoid rot while in transit. After an hour or two turn the plant upside down to remove any water that collected at the base. This could lead to rot. After this you can mist the plants every three days to a week.
