Air plants are a classic plant for those who dislike dirt! Fast becoming a fantastic addition to any modern home, these live plants are low maintenance and easily kept alive in a terrarium. Misting every few days is suggested, as well as a weekly soak for about an hour. When soaking is done, shake out any excess water and allow to dry upside down for about 4 hours. For more detailed information, visit the blog post entitled "Air Plants- Tillandsia." An information card will also be sent with your order.
Tillandsia ionantha rubra is typically seen as a smaller air plant, less than one inch tall and wide. These are XL- about 3 inches tall and wide! The care and growth habit are the same, despite the size. They will still blush a jaw-dropping red when in bloom, hence "rubra" in the name. The purple flower they create contrasts nicely with the red leaves. Eventually, this species will form a clump.
