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.
