This species can be tricky to find, especially here in the US.  T. ramellae has lovely stiff recurved leaves that are densely lepidote and nice thick routes which makes it easy to mount.  Seems to always be producing offsets, who doesn't love that? The bloom is not a show stopper, but the beautiful frosty leaves and general shape of plant make up for it
