A gray-leaved Tillandsia found growing as a lithophyte on cliffs and rarely on trees in the intermontane valleys of the Western slopes of the Andes in Ecuador and Peru. Features broad leaves tapering to a fine tip, rather soft and forming a loose rosette of recurving leaves. The inflorescence is tall, feather shaped and light pink to slightly orange. The flowers, set distichously, are greenish yellow. Easy to cultivate under typical Tillandsia conditions, mounted or in a very good draining media.
