A species of Bolivia that forms heavy clusters of plants with moderately stiff, tapering, channeled leaves that are coated on both sides with silvery trichomes. An inflorescence exceeds the length of the leaves and is a simple spike with a green rachis and reddish bracts (bright red in nature) and very large, spreading white flowers.
From the State of Santa Cruz, this species lives on both rocks and trees at altitudes of 3,000 to 5,000 feet. We have grown this species for years here in Florida and find it easy to cultivate. It likes bright light, but protect from mid day sun in cultivation.
