This variety develops new rosettes on stolons, usually 20-30 cm long, so the plant eventually creeps or climbs or simply spreads in the air. It was collected for the first time in 1981 in the coastal area of Buzios, in Rio de Janeiro. According to the bromeliad expert Elton Leme: "This new variety is unusual mainly because its small size contrasts so markedly with the variable but usually very long stolon that can reach to almost one meter in length. For this reason, the plant would be an interesting garden specimen.
In nature, it thrives in the coastal regions, at sea level, growing as a terrestrial and sometimes forming huge masses under the bushy restinga vegetation, and also in sunny places. (...) Its geographical distribution is not precisely established yet, but we can be certain that this new variety grows at least from the coastal region of Sao Pedro da Aldeia up the County of Macae, State of Rio de Janeiro."
