$ 10.00 Sold out
Truly a marvel of Mother Nature, the Tillandsia Air Plant Ionantha Guatemala is an exotic species native to the forests, mountains, and deserts of Central and South America. Its slender, spiky leaves are a lively green, gradually transforming into a striking shade of red as the plant matures. This brilliant color change is a prelude to the plant's blooming period, during which it produces a stunning display of tubular purple flowers. As an added bonus, the blooming process also gives birth to tiny pups, or offsets, which eventually grow into full-sized plants, increasing the density of your foliage. Growing to a modest height and width of about 2-3 inches, the Tillandsia Air Plant Ionantha Guatemala is a versatile and resilient plant that is easy to care for. Unlike traditional plants, it doesn't require soil to grow – a characteristic that has earned it the name 'air plant.' Instead, it absorbs nutrients and moisture from the air through its leaves, making it a perfect addition to a variety of indoor spaces, from a suspended glass terrarium to a decorative driftwood arrangement. In its natural habitat, the Tillandsia Air Plant Ionantha Guatemala can be found hanging off tree branches, nestled in rock crevices, or even clinging to telephone wires. In your home, it can be displayed in a similar fashion – simply attach it to a piece of driftwood or a seashell using a dab of hot glue, or let it float freely in a glass terrarium. Either way, this captivating plant is sure to create a captivating 'drifter' effect. The Tillandsia Air Plant Ionantha Guatemala is a slow grower, but with the right care – consisting of bright, indirect light and regular misting – it will flourish and reward you with a spectacular bloom. During its blooming period, you can look forward to the plant's leaves turning a vibrant red, and the emergence of delicate purple flowers. These blooms typically open during the day and close at night, adding a dynamic touch to your indoor plant display. Embrace the uniqueness of the Tillandsia Air Plant Ionantha Guatemala, and let it breathe a breath of fresh air into your indoor plant collection. Whether you're a seasoned plant enthusiast or a beginner looking to add a touch of nature to your living space, this air plant is sure to captivate with its easy care, resilient nature, and stunning visual appeal.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
