Tillandsia scaposa, (L.B.Sm.) Ehlers 2000


kolbii = The plants were collected by Stefan Schatzl from Linz, Austria, and it is named in honour of former Landesrat Rudolf Kolb, Linz, for his services to the Linz Botanical Garden.

Propagation: seed
Origin: Southern Mexico

The species grows in a sparse oak forest and prefers the underside of stronger branches as habitat on these not very tall trees.


Tillandsia kolbii has been on the market for many years as Tillandsia ionantha var. scaposa. During a collecting trip through southern Mexico Stefan Schatzl discovered this species, which he subsequently described with Walter Till as Tillandsia kolbii. In the original description he clearly distinguishes the species from Tillandsia ionantha (scaposa). Nevertheless, since its publication there have been new discussions whether it is a new species and whether the Tillandsia kolbii discovered by Schatzl is identical with Tillandsia ionantha 'Scaposa'.
Tillandsia kolbii grows much wetter than Tillandsia ionantha.
