I believe this is T. latifolia v. leucophylla, but it was simply sold to me as latifolia so I will keep the nomenclature consistent.  Grows caulescently like most latifolia and grows quite big, spanning two feet at maturity with a bloomspike that exceeds 4 feet.  Very easy to grow and can handle a good amount of direct light
