A cluster of tapering leaves, silvery with heavy trichomes. The inflorescence is a simple spike of pink, dusted with silver, bearing white flowers. We collected this plant quite some years ago at a very high altitude, about 12,000 feet. They were growing on rocks in full sun and were coated with heavy dust from the nearby dirt road. We never expected this plant to survive in Florida, at sea level, but survive they did, and thrive. They are slow growing, but steady and healthy and long lived.
Every thing Tropiflora ships is 1st rate. T. Bolivians is arrived in perfect condition and larger than expected. The info provided on website says high altitude and slow. I too live at sea level, but in So. Calif. near ocean. Maybe heat and humidity will speed growing. A very nice addition to my collection. Pleased to acquire this rare plant from a fantastic vender.
