    This is frequently sold as T. brandtiae. The close-ups are of one clone and the plant image is a different clone.

    Thanks folks. Bleecker, I grow it intermediate, moderate light, mounted, just dry between waterings. When first mounted, I don't add sphagnum around the roots. Remount before the substrate goes bad, they start to go downhill if it gets stale around the roots.
