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.
I purchased 2 lots of airplants from Andy and can honestly say that I am more than pleased with the selection sent they’re an excellent size and perfect condition and I Would recommend Andy,s Airplants to beginners and experienced alike
considering my order was close to christmas it arrived quickly, well packaged and all the air plants were in excellent condition. So glad to buy from an expert and will purchase again
This is the second purchase I have made from Andy’s Air Plants and yet again the plants were of excellent quality
Arrived promptly, well packaged, info leaflet on care, plants looked healthy and large ( for an air plant ).thoroughly recommended. Thanks
A good selection in the pack, these were very healthy specimens we received. They have gone on in the space of 2 weeks to grow massively, and on two there is evidence of pups forming already. Having bought from other sources in the past I wouldn’t entertain using any other supplier in the future, I’ve found where I’m staying, quality, value, service and the personal touch cannot be beaten. Thank You.
