Tillandsia Ionantha - air plant

I got the tillandsia ionantha (air plant) from Hua Hng Trading Co Pte Ltd for S$12. There were 3 areas with purple and red leaves. When there are purple and red leaves, the flowers will bloom. There will be 3 flowers in each bloom. The bloom will only last a couple of days, so be sure to enjoy the bloom and take many photographs because you will never know when is the next bloom.

After the bloom, you will notice tiny shoots growing. These are new buds. It will take many months before the buds will develop into young adult plants.
