T. filifolia

Usually a stemless plant but does has a stem for a very old non flowering specimen. Plenty of green needle like rossette spreading leaves reaching not more than 12" diameter plant. Its' type locality is from central Mexico to Costa Rica gorwing epiphytically on trees at 100m-2000m alt.
Nice odd looking plant especially for the bulbous forming leaf bracts.
