When it comes to house plants, this chic and contemporary air plant is sure to attract some attention in your home. Tillandsia ionantha is popular species from the Bromeliad family. Adapted to rainforest conditions, these exotic plants grow naturally on trees and don’t require any soil to grow, absorbing nutrients and moisture from the air. Their evergreen nature means their look great all year round with exotic, silver-grey crown of foliage which develops a vibrant red tinge around the same time that it produces its fascinating, contrasting purple flowers. It’s easy to create a suitable environment for these trendy, low maintenance plants in your home, either in a terrarium, vase or tucked into driftwood. Best grown in a well lit room with higher humidity levels, such as a bathroom or kitchen. Height: 40cm (16”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

These Tillandsia are epiphytic plants which do not require compost to grow. They can be wired or glued onto a suitable support such as wood or an attractive shell. Position airplants in bright, filtered light with good air circulation, at a minimum temperature of 5C (41F).
Water frequently from spring to autumn by immersing the entire plant in rainwater or misting thoroughly. Allow the plant to completely drain and dry after each watering. Feed monthly by adding a small amount of bromeliad fertiliser to misting water.
