A robust form of this variable Venezuelan species.   The cultivar name ‘Marron’ means brown in Spanish, but we do not see any brown in this plant.  Perhaps it had a brownish appearance in nature.  We have observed this plant at several locations in habitat and know that the plants vary quite a lot. 

A cliff dweller that grows on rocks in full sun,  in cultivation it will form a large cluster even to several feet across with time.  Very nice, short, needle thin leaves that tint reddish in bright light and at anthesis.  Flowers are blood red.
