A rare caulescent species from Sumidero Canyon in Chiapas, Mexico, where it covers the canyon walls in some places, by the thousands. Tillandsia ionantha v. vanhyningii has short thick leaves on a 3 to 6 inch stem and blushes a peach color when in bloom and forms large cascading clusters. The plant grows with a long stem that forms many adventitious offsets which can be removed and grown or left to form a large cluster. Very easy to grow, bright and airy.
Yes,the velvety texture and pink hues along with its hardiness and ease of maintainence has charmed me fully,and allthough my wife also has pink hues and is fairly hardy, Tillandsia ionantha v.vanhyning never yells at me or tries to throw out my odiferous Lazy Boy comfort lounger, all-in-all for psychological agreeabilty i will take Tillandsia ionantha v. vanhyning over my wife any day...
Excellent! Thanks much.
