Tillandsia ionatha is a widely occurring species of tough colorful air plants originally from central America. These velvety and closely clustered air plants grow on the sides of trees and vines and can be quite colorful when they are getting ready to bloom. Water by misting 1 – 2 times weekly or soak about 10 minutes once a week. Spray with an air plant fertilizer monthly and keep in indirect light. Try taking smaller air plants and wearing them as jewelry or cluster together in a container for a wowsy look!
