Ionantha Guatemala is a beautiful air plant with thin spiky leaves with many trichomes that give the leaves a silvery look. When the plant is about to bloom, it changes to shades of vibrant deep red to orange and eventually displays yellow/purple/white tubular flowers. Ionantha Guatemala blooms 2 or 3 times a year. It creates many offsets or pups which will clump into a ball as it matures.
Light: Bright indirect sunlight. Soil: No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil. Water: Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. Ionantha Guatemala 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 rot.
