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
Air plants need regular sprinkling of water on their leaves. However once a week, air plants need to be submerged in water. Take a big enough container and fully submerge your air plant for 3-4 hours. Once soaked, you need to dry them off completely! Hence shake them and put them on a soft towel. Place them under a bright spot for 2-3 hours so that there is no excess water on it. Make sure to dry them or air plants get a root rot very quickly.
Bright filtered or indirect light is ideal for air plants. Morning sun is healthy for the plants, however afternoon sun can quickly burn the leaves. Use a fertiliser once a month in the water when you soak the air plants to keep it healthy.
