Tillandsia Ionantha Var Stricta is a form of Ionantha. Given good lighting and lower temperature, the center remains red. However, in our local climate, it is difficult to maintain the redness for a long time. Furthermore, var. stricta prefers a cooler climate to thrive and does best under lower temperature. Hence, if given a choice they do very well when humidity levels are high. To achieve such standard, clumping them together with other Tillandsias is a good way to start. However, if placed among a web of Tillandsia, be sure to check the air circulation, as air plants enjoy the breeze through their leaves.
