Starting to blush!

The Tillandsia ionantha fuego is a such a colorful and fun little air plant. This type of ionantha is native to Mexico and areas of Central America, where it grows with abundance and color.  The ionantha fuego is a very low maintenance air plant, making it perfect for "green thumb" challenged individuals!  This variety of Tillandsia is known for being a quick grower, and as it matures will create many "pups" which will eventually clump into a ball like formation.  During the bloom cycle this variety will change to shades of amazing deep reds eventually shooting out white, purple, and blue flowers!  This air plant variety prefers very bright indirect sunlight. 

The small size of this variety of ionantha lends it to endless design possibilities.  We offer several different air plant kits using the ionantha fuego variety, which can be found HERE!

Pretty Plant

Plant arrived promptly and in excellent condition. After a few hours of rest, I misted the plant and applied a small spritz of fertilizer. It then joined my other air plants in a terrarium with fine, white sand and an assortment of seaside finds, where it receives direct morning light and a dim, but warming light on cold nights. I am new to air plants and was surprised and thrilled when not one, but two purple bloom stems appeared just a few days later! They have already lasted several days. The picture doesn't do it justice. It really is a very attractive plant. I love it's shape.

What a lovely set up! We are so glad that you are happy with your plants. We appreciate your business :)


When this air plant first arrived, it came perfectly undamaged. After a month of taking care of it, it finally bloomed this beautiful purple flower and turned into a fire red. I currently have two pups growing from the mother plant. An easy air plant for beginners and would def recommend.

Hi Danessy!
