This hybrid has a slightly bulbous base and semi-curly leaves densely covered in trichomes.  I have not had this hybrid for long, but my hope is that is has a vigorous reproductive habit like its parent T. baileyi; if it does, this means you can expect this plant to quickly form a healthy clump after a few blooms
