Tillandsia Ionantha

Tillandsia Ionantha

The Sky Plant grows on deciduous trees and rocks. It most commonly grows as a stemless plant, with leaves of 5 cm to 10 cm long, covered with coarse, silvery-grey scales that both store water until it can be absorbed and act to reflect intense sunlight from the leaf surface, thereby preventing excessive water loss through transpiration. The outer leaves are green and the inner leaves are deep red at the time of flowering. The violet petals are over 4 cm long and the yellow stamens and pistil protrude from the end. The fruit is a capsule about 3 cm in length containing the seeds, each having a feathered tuft of hairs.
