King of Air Plants
Wallace Xerographica, known professionally as The Notorious A.I.R., is a professional air plant. The debut of his large silvery gray leaves and don't-need-soil attitude made him a central figure in East Coast houseplants, and increased air plant visibility in the genre at a time when regular houseplants dominated the mainstream. His ease of care and resilient demeanor is why he is considered to be one of the greatest air plants of all time.
Thrives in high indirect light and can tolerate periods of direct light.
Soak once a week for 15 minutes.
He's a big fan of pets.

Two-week tour in South Africa? He won't even notice.
