Growth Rate
Also known as Tillandsia Ionantha Scaposa, it is a slow-growing air plant.

The flowering of this stunning plant takes place from November to March. The vibrant blooms are purple in color and look fascinating in any corner.

During a hot climate, it is best to water your Tillandsia scaposa every two to three days. In humid weather, on the other hand, watering once a week is sufficient. Like other air plants, these species also prefer to be dried out between waterings.

Kolbii plants are low-maintenance that do not require soil. Appropriate watering as well as lighting conditions combined with ample airflow help in their growth!

Ionantha Scaposa air plant belongs to the hardiness zone of 9 to 11. It is not frost-hardy. So, give utmost care while planting it in areas with temperatures less than 30° to 40° F (-1.1 to 4.4° C).

Indirect filtered light is preferred for your plant’s good health. Avoid the direct full sun as it can cause damage. Besides, shade-grown Kolbii looks fresher and more beautiful.

Scaposa air plant can be propagated by seeds or by offsets known as pups.

Tillandsia Ionantha Scaposa air plant care is easier than other houseplants! Unique yet eye-catching, these plants turn out to be perfect in terrariums as well.

Blooms are growing in!

The exciting thing with the new air plants received is seeing the new (to me) blooms, and this plant already has one coming! BUT, that is not the most surprising thing of this well wrapped and sealed delivery... There was a hitchhiker from CA that tried to scurry into my VA yard! I actually can't believe it hasn't happened before. No worries though, I did not let it get away, I've seen what happens in movies!
