Description

Tillandsia ionantha is a species originating from Mexico to Panama, which occurs preferably at altitudes up to 1800 metres. It grows as an epiphyte on trees in various dry to moderately humid habitats. It forms a compact, small rosette of narrow, grey-green leaves.
Tillansia ionantha 'Rubra Peach' is one of numerous selections of the species. Its rosette leaves have a deeper shade of green than other forms. When the plant comes into flower, the upper rosette leaves take on a distinct peachy-red hue.

Tillandsia ionantha 'Rubra Peach' belongs to the "grey" Tillandsias, also called "desert" or dry Tillandsias, and prefers a very light, airy place in the terrarium without permanent humidity. These "air plants" absorb nutrients and water from the atmosphere exclusively with the help of many small suction scales on their leaves. The roots serve as adhesive roots. The plant can be attached to solid materials like wood or stone. Spray the Tillandsie two to three times a week with soft water or immerse it. In between, it should be allowed to dry off. Optimally, an orchid and tillandsia fertiliser is added every second watering during spring and summer.
Like almost all Tillandsias, this plant also forms several children at its base after flowering. These can be carefully separated from a size of about one third of the mother plant. If they are not separated, they grow together to form a larger clump.

T. ionantha 'Rubra Peach' can also find a place in smaller terrariums thanks to its height of only about 5 - 8 cm. With its unique appearance, it is both an eye-catcher and an accent to other plants.
