Tillandsia ionantha “vanhyningii”

A really rare and sought-after variety of the popular Ionantha species is Ionantha vanhyningii. It has the most succulent (thick) leaves of any T. Ionantha variety. Caulescent refers to the star-like arrangement in which the succulent, thick-leaved green leaves form on the plant’s long, “branch-like” body. It has short, succulent, green/gray leaves covered in a thick covering of Trichomes. In order to attract hummingbirds for pollination, this variety of T. Ionantha blooms a vibrant pink. The thin, tubular blooms of this plant emerge above the leaves in a rich purple hue. Many offsets will form along the plant’s stem after it blooms.

Care

Tillandsia Ionantha Vanhyningii grows well indoors but prefers indirect, strong light. Direct sunlight will burn the leaves of this plant, so keep it out of the sun as much as possible. Tillandsia Ionantha Vanhyningii does best in warm environments between 50 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.  It needs enough ventilation and a certain amount of humidity.
