Tillandsia ionantha x exserta

Regular price $15.00 Sale

Origins: Manmade hybrid

Bloom: Short, simple inflorescence that barely escapes the upper leaves thanks to the ionantha parentage.  Single (or sometimes multiple) bracts are red producing purple flowers

Ideal for: Indoor/Outdoor

Light: Indirect to strong indirect light, partial direct light okay

Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Soak for up to 4 hours as necessary to rehydrate during hotter and drier months

 

This cross has grown on me quite a bit.  While it doesn't have the recurving leaves I hoped it would from the exserta parentage, it feels like a dense, massive ionantha.  Can grow up to 12" long before blooming
