Tillandsia ionantha ‘Ron’

(1 customer review)


A relative newcomer, Tillandsia Ionantha Ron has only been commercially available for just over a decade, and is still something of a rarity.  Named for a Florida Tillandsia grower, Ron Herndon. This extraordinarily unique airplant has thick succulent leaves which result in a plant with a truly unique shape.

Similarly to other Tillandsia Ionantha airplants, Tillandsia Ionantha Ron blushes red around flowering time when it produces purple flowers.

    Very pleased to have added T.i. Ron to my collection as this is quite distinct from others in this group. My specimen’s rosette is more columnar than others in the group and the leaves are much thicker and succulent right to the leaf tips so probably less likely to suffer from dry leaf tips. The overall colour is a uniform mid-green and has an overall sturdier body and feels less delicate.
    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.
