This beautiful cliff-dwelling species endemic to Chiapas, Mexico is usually seen as a modest sized plant about 6 to 8 inches across, max, with normally, a simple spike. This clone is a relative giant, at well over 12 inches across and quite heavy and dense, the leaves are rather succulent and the inflorescence inflated.Covered with a thick coat of trichomes, it is silvery or even pinkish with a pink, scurffy inflorescence.
The inflorescence is usually three branched and very fat. Naturally such a large plant would be expected to be a slower grower, and it is. A blooming plant is worth the wait! Easy to grow, mounted, bright and airy, it will give months of color when in bloom. An outstanding and rarely seen selection of this fine species.
