Description for Air Plant, Tillandsia ionantha Guatemala (Small)
Ionantha Guatemala (Small) is an extra adorable air plant features layers of the softest, fuzziest leaves. Absolutely unlike any other air plant. The silvery-white colored “fuzz”, also known as trichomes, naturally reflects sunlight, which essentially shields the plant from direct sunlight to help it from drying out.
Air plants are mostly mistaken for being artificial as they are attractive and require no size. They produce oxygen and reduce dust. They increase the quality of the air and increase the green cover. These plants are known to improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress and boost your mood.
Planting and care

The best way to propagate tillandsia is through the division of the offsets, or pups. The time to do the task is during the morning hours or early afternoon. It thrives in warm and humid conditions but will do just fine in dry, desert-like environments with regular misting.

All-day direct sunlight will lead to the plant over-drying and the tips burning.

It also loves fluorescent lighting making them ideal for office environments.
