Tillandsia Kolbii is very similar to T. Ionantha, but is set apart by its taller appearance with a slight curvature to the leaves. The inflorescence of the Kolbii is shorter than on Ionantha. It produces a bright scarlet red flower when in bloom.
Kolbii prefer less bright light, and they also enjoy a humid environment. If your Kolbii is getting too dry, the entire plant will have a grey appearance and will feel dry to the touch. If this happens, give your Kolbii 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.
Suitable for Container, Hanging Garden & Xeriscaping
