About Air Plants:
The Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is a unique low-maintenance plant that is small on size but big and healthy on appearance.
Rubras can tolerate INDIRECT bright light to partial shade. As with all air plants, they take in water and nutrients from the air and should not be planted in soil. The bottom "roots" are for attaching only, and should not stay wet for longer than four hours or the plant will begin to rot.
☀ The Rubra starts life with shades of green, yellow, and red which all deepen on how the plant matures and enters its bloom cycle., it grows little pups (babies). These pups will appear around the base of the plant, and they will be easily removable.
♥ Perfect for beginners and experts, in a tiny macrame holder (coming soon to our shop!), a fairy garden, gracing a window sill (indirect light most of the day), or in a wire holder (also coming soon!) above your favorite rock or decoration.
☀Xerographica can tolerate higher light and direct sun. Xerographica can live up to 20 years! Their floret will turn a slight pink while blushing when exposed to higher light. IMPORTANT CARE NOTES: Xerographica will not bathe every 7-10 days, but will like to be sprayed lightly every 7-10 days and also given a bath for 20-45 minutes every 14 days.
⇨Tillandsia RUBRA AND IONANTHA air plants like to bathe for 20 minutes every 7- 10 days, but can also be held under running water for a good soaking. In addition, please give them a slight misting every 2-3 days, and allow them to dry out completely within 4 hours so their ends do not rot. This plant does not like staying wet and can rot from overwatering. Please do not put them in soil.
►►►►IMPORTANT NOTE: We never add color to our plants. We believe that they should grow naturally, without intervention.
We hope that you enjoy your plant and it's natural growth and changing process.
