The Tillandsia ionantha rubra is a unique low maintenance plant that is perfect for smaller terrariums, globes, and sea shells. The rubra starts life with shades of green, yellow, and red which all deepen as the plant matures and enters its bloom cycle. Over time the ionantha rubra will create "pups" and will eventually form a clump. This little air plant is small on size but big on appearance!
Regular: 1-2 Inches Tall
Large: 3+ Inches Tall
