This listing is for a large, mature Ionantha Rubra. Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is a hardy Ionantha. 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!

Beautiful plant. I'm waiting patiently for it to blush. :)

I love everything about these Rubra air plants! Each one is a unique individual; I can't pick a favorite; they are all so appealing!
This plant arrived with multiple leaves falling off. Multiple...I contacted the owner as soon as it arrived. I also sent pictures. We did not reach a solution. It is unfortunate. Two plants I ordered were beautiful ( 5 stars worthy). It was like day and night. But because of the way my situation was handled and the response in particular sadly, I would not purchase here again. I'd find a store that backs their product.
Healthliest air plant I've ever seen!
