Ionantha Rubra is very similar to Ionantha Guatemala in shape and form. What differentiates the two is that Ionantha Rubra tends to have fewer trichomes and often a taller appearance as they get larger.
Rubra are the perfect glass terrarium plant. If you have seen an already set up air plant vase, there is a good chance you have also seen a Rubra in there. They have the ideal shape for terrariums, wood displays, air plant frames, and general mounting. They also respond well to misting, but soaking is always preferred.
Rubras turn a beautiful red/pink color with a purple flower when in bloom.
The Ionantha Rubra XL is far and away, one of our most popular items. People can't seem to get enough of it.
