Tillandsia ionantha fuego. This plant holds high red blush year round when exposed to bright light. This is a smaller form of ionantha. The small plants can look different than the adults as can be seen in the photos above. As they mature they develop thicker leaves and look more like the larger plants shown. As the sizes go from large to specimen sometimes the height of the plant won’t be reflected as much as the thickness or girth of the plant. They form clumps that are breathtaking, this is my favorite ionantha, can you tell 😉
•Note: Not all plants will be blushing vibrant red at this time and some may be bloomed out or with minimal leaf damage.
