A large Brazilian species endemic to the state of Rio de Janeiro, described by Elton Leme. Resembling Vr. platynema and that group in general shape, and with leaves of similar thick, leathery texture. A full rosette of moderately stiff, wide leaves of medium green dusted with a waxy gray powder, giving the plant a glaucous appearance. The leaves do not bear any markings such as dark tips or bases and have no pronounced reticulations or mottling. The inflorescence is a simple spike with distichously arranged, sessile flowers in a feather-like arrangement. This species requires pure water and does not like extreme heat.
