Tillandsia ionantha ‘Fuego’

(5 customer reviews)


Although its one of the smaller ionantha type air plants, Tillandsia ionantha ‘Fuego’ more than makes up for its stature with its intensely neon red colouration around flowering time.

This clump forming air plant freely multiplies producing offsets after its display of deep, velvety purple flowers.  Tillandsia ionantha ‘Fuego’ maintains its red leaf colouration for a longer period than most other air plants.

Plants may not always be supplied blushing red, as this leaf colouration occurs around flowering season. 

Supplied approx. 1.5″ – 2″ tall. 

  • Eventual (Mature) Height: upto 8cm
  • Eventual (Mature) Width: 4cm
  • Flower colour: Violet
  • Watering: Moderate

    This may be a small airplant but the bright red colour is stunning. Better than anything I have bought from my local garden centre.

  2. A J Hodge (verified owner)

    A beatiful plant from an excellent nursery.

    Mine was super healthy upon arrival and even flowered a month later, still going strong!

    A stunning two headed clump received in healthy condition and was delighted that the larger head was in true vibrant colour which is the main attraction of T. i. Fuego and in my opinion probably the most intense red of its group.
    This variety seems to be smaller growing than others in its group and perfect for those with limited space.
    The packing was thoughtful and sturdy: each plant in my order was individually wrapped in tissue paper, each had a printed name tag, and the whole order packed in a bubblewrapped lined cardboard box, properly labelled “Live plants FRAGILE”. The one price shipping cost, regardless of order size, was dispatched Royal Mail 48 Tracked service and I was kept informed by email a throughout my order. A truly faultless experience and very happy to recommend Craftyplants; perfection.
