  •  Tillandsia ionantha Rubra, is an easy-to-grow air plant with short waxy green leaves. When the plant is about to bloom, it changes to shades of vibrant deep red to orange and eventually displays yellow/purple/red tubular flowers. Ionantha Rubra creates many offsets or pups which will clump into a ball as it matures.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  •  Bright indirect sunlight.

     No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil.

     Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra will also benefit from a soaking bath every month. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent root.

  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Beautiful and healthy!

I ordered four air plants at once, including a TIllandsia Ionantha Rubra. This little guy arrived quickly, well-packaged, and healthy! While the red wasn't quite as vibrant as the picture, he still brightens up my office! I'm excited to get even more! I'll just have to check the mail before my husband does...
