These air plants are absolutely “blushingly” beautiful as they have touches of red and pink which is commonly called “blushing.” These are prone to blooming as well so they are a real show off and perfect for blooming special plant lovers.
The ionantha is a mesic variety of the Tillandsia genus, meaning it’s much more suited to a tropical environment with a high temperature and humidity.
As with all Air Plants, they’re happiest in open terrariums and larger containers with plenty of airflow, but this species can grow in a closed environment with the right care.
Ionantha is one of the most popular air plants. It is often the first Tillandsia in a beginner’s collection. This is because these grow very easily and also readily produce pups. You will often see these form into clumps of 3-5 plants. These air plants can withstand a variety of conditions, but prefer brighter light levels and routine watering’s. This is one of the air plants that can either be misted, or submerged in water.
