This Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra large looks great in a terrarium or sea urchin planter. Though it’s still a small air plant, this Ionantha Rubra is large for its kind. Similar to Ionantha Guat., Ionantha Rubra grows in a nice fountain shape. Unlike Ionantha Guat, Rubra has thicker leaves that give it a cool, stubby look.

Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra Care Instructions

Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is easy to grow. Take your plant out of the box as soon as your package arrives. Follow the easy steps in the air plant care guide included to get started.

+ Water +
Soak your Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra once a week in a bowl of water for 10 minutes each time. You can also mist your plant with a spray bottle 2-3 times a week if it needs more water between the soakings. Tillandsias absorb water through leaves instead of roots. Gently shake off any excessive water from the center of the air plant after each watering. Place your air plant somewhere with good air circulation to dry it completely within 4 hours of watering. Do not put it under the sun or near heaters/AC units as intense heat and cold temperature can damage the plant.

+ Light +
Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra likes bright, indirect light. Display your Rubra somewhere near the window where it can get some indirect light during the day. If you don’t have natural sunlight coming in, office fluorescent lighting would do the job too. Just avoid direct sunlight since the plant can get burnt.

+ Air +
Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra does best in warm environments between 50 – 90 F. It needs good air circulation and some humidity as well.
