This is a variety of mima with very narrow and stiff leaves.  Simply holding this plant, you can tell it is hardy and built for desert like conditions.  It can handle as lot of light and doesn't need much water, but it is very slow growing.  Produces pups year round from the base of the plant, and produces pups on the bloomspike during bloom
