Tillandsia jionesii is a 2008 newly described species from Brazil. It has wonderfull dark purple leaves, red flower spikes and deep blue/purple flowers that open to reveal the yellow pollen inside. the plant is similar in apperance to T. aeranthos.
This is a very rarely offered species. Otherwise easy to grow with bright light and regular misting.
These are small plants available.
Only had my plants for 2 weeks on one has flowered already.
The plant were dispatched with a flowering spike and buds ready to open . It was large size and looked very healthy, the flowers opened into the most amazing display. Can’t wait for the summer now to see if the plant gets a bronze hue.
I was so happy to receive my gorgeous Tillandsia Jonesii with 2 flower stems already well on their way into full flower. My growing collection of air plants from Andy really is a source of great joy in my life!
A great deep purple plant that came ready to bloom
I chose Andy's Air Plants as he won a gold at Chelsea, and I have not been disappointed. I have been back three times now over the last 2 or 3 years and each time the plants have arrived promptly, well parcelled and in very good condition. I love my new Air Plants.
