A large and lovely species from Minas Gerais, Brazil, with leaves of silver growing in spidery fashion from a short stem. In some ways this species looks a bit like Til. streptocarpa but is larger with leaves less curled. The inflorescence resembles that species as well as straminea but the branches are held closer to the stem. The inflorescence is a tall and branched, without much color, but produces masses of lovely purple, very fragrant flowers. Grows in nature on granitic outcrops in full sun, but adapts to varied conditions in cultivation. Can be mounted, but does not root readily. Bright conditions and an airy location is best.
