Often mistakenly labeled as coming from Mount Roraima, this tropical form of D. intermedia is an ever-growing, easy species for a collection. Rosettes may reach up to 3 inches in diameter and rarely develop stems, with an erect to semi-erect pincushion arrangement of thin paddle-shaped leaves. Under strong lighting this form may even take on a distinctive reddish tinge, unlike many temperate forms which may remain mostly green. Once mature short wiry stalks are produced almost constantly and bear several small, self-pollinating white flowers. A great plant for a solitary display, they will also sometimes bud off old leaves and form loose colonies.
