A fairly new and certainly very obscure species described in only 2011 from material collected by Chester Skotak in Panama. Found on Mt. Garagara at 600 meters in altitude. This species is related to V. glutinosa and splendens to which it bears little visible similarity. The plant is medium sized with arching leaves in a 24 inch rosette. The leaves are discolor, gray-green on top and purple below and of a thick, leathery texture. The inflorescence is on a short scape with very long, almost cylindric, bipinate branches. the inflorescence is reddish on the lower end of the braches and scape and green-yellow towards the ends. Flowers are green. A rare species that deserves to be in wider cultivation.
