This species hosts the widest variety of any tillandsia.  This is easily the most common and recognizable air plant available as it is adaptable to a whole host of conditions.  Ionanthas produce many offsets each bloom cycle, quickly forming hearty little clumps.  This variety has thicker and more succulent leaves than ionantha Rubra, but not quite as thick as ionantha vanhyningii
