I got this Xerographica air plant for my laundry bath at a local nursery. It cost me $20, so it better live. I have another of this variety and it has done well, so it feels like a safe bet. I have a bit of an air plant addiction. They are slowly getting scattered throughout my house. Overall, they are really easy to care for. I've only lost a few. The Xerographica is the most expensive variety I've bought. Most of them cost between $3 - $10.
