Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is a hearty Ionantha of the smaller variety of Tillandsia. A great starter plant and one most people have in their collection. It will blush shades from darker red to bright magenta/pink and will shoot dark purple blooms with yellow tips. All of our plants ship green, however, when available this item will ship blushing.
These plants are low maintenance, making them a great choice for people who are new to indoor plants.
They need regular daily indirect or filtered sunlight (so fine for desks, shelves, bathrooms or bedrooms). A weekly water is all they require - although you can always give them a mist in between if they look a little dry.
Air plants prefer regular air circulation, so we suggest open terrariums rather than the kind with lids.
We stock an air plant fertilizer which is ideal for this plant - check out the 'Supplies' section of our shop to see more. We also have a wide range of fillers which you can use as a base in any plant pot you might use. Orchid bark is a great choice for this!
