This hybrid of (kolbii x bulbosa) by Grace Goode is one of only a few that she made, having been much more prolific with Neoregelia. An unusual cross using T. kolbii which is rarely seen in hybrids. (In fact, this is the only one we can find). T. kolbii is an ionantha-like, small grower and it gives its influence in the cross mainly with the inflorescence. The inflorescence is light pink, branched and held low amongst the leaves, with very long, leaf-like scape bracts. The general aspect of the plant is similar to the bulbosa parent, bulbous based, terete leaves held erect. At anthesis the scape bracts blush deep pinkish red.
