Ionantha is from the Greek 'Ion' meaning purple, and 'Anthos' which means flower. When the ionantha's come into their flowering process they color up really well turning fiery red, and then will produce the lovely purple, tubular flowers, then they will produce pups or offsets around the base which will grow and flower again when they reach maturity which is generally on year.
There are many many sub-species and varieties of ionantha, which makes them very collectible. They are very popular due to their ease of growing, vibrant display and the fact that they are so versatile.
Here is a lovely selection of 5 different ionantha's.
Arrived well packaged, good-sized healthy plants, all labelled. I would recommend Andy's plants for anyone considering an air plant display
From order to post delivery the service including advice has been excellent. The plants all arrived on time , well packaged with good instructions. I have bought airplants before from the usual outlets , however the quality and range Andy provides is second to none. Will definitely be buying more and would urge anyone thinking of growing airplants to visit his site.
All plants arrived safely in their packaging, together with comprehensive care notes. They look beautiful.
I placed my order on Wednesday 16th Sept. The plants arrived one week later on the following Wednesday. They were well packed wrapped in tissue paper. Each plant had a hand written label in order to identify them. They came with instructions on how best to care for them which is helpful for someone like me who has never had air plants before. I really like the mix of plants available to purchase. The plants I have received look very healthy and are a good size for a small display. They were exactly what I was looking for and the plants I received were exactly what I was expecting. I chose to order from Andy’s plants as I think it is important to support small businesses and taking a look at the website it is clear to see Andy has a real passion for his work.
