Tillandsia xerographica is a species of bromeliad that is native to southern Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. The name is derived from the Greek words xeros, meaning "dry", and graphia, meaning "writing". It is included in Tillandsia subg. Tillandsia. Tillandsia xerographica is a slow-growing, xerophytic epiphyte. The silvery gray leaves are wide at the base and taper to a point making an attractive, sculptural rosette, 3 feet or more in diameter and over 3 feet high in flower. The inflorescence, on a thick, green stem, from 6 to 15 inches in height, densely branched. The leaf bracts are rosy red; the floral bracts are chartreuse; and the petals of the tubular flowers are red to purple and are very long lasting (months).
