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!
