Known as the queen of air plants, xerographica is the centerpiece of any collection.  With long graceful leaves and an ability to adapt to diverse climates, this is a must have plant.  A word of caution, xerographica is prone to rotting when stagnant water sits in the base of leaves for extended periods of time.  This is a species you must shake out upside down or tip over after watering to keep healthy. Drying next to a window is a good idea if you keep it inside.
