Tillandsia ionantha 'Druid'
Tillandsia ionantha druid has bright green leaves with fuzzy trichomes. As the plant grows and matures, its leaves will begin to extend outward. At this point, most T. ionantha plants will turn a darker shade of green. The leaves of the T. ionantha druid, if left in bright light, will keep their bright green color and will fade to a bright yellow color. In addition, the flowers are white instead of the grape violet of the other forms.
Tillandsia prefer less bright light, and they also enjoy a humid environment. If your ionantha is getting too dry, the entire plant will have a grey appearance and will feel dry to the touch. If this happens, give your Tillandsia a soak overnight and check it again in the morning to see if the addition of moisture helped to revitalize the plant. It prefers slightly cooler conditions and requires more frequent watering in areas that receive long periods of sunlight.
