A miniature species that resembles T. myosura and T. capillaris.  Grows distichous, meaning the leaves come out on either side of the stem, giving it a flat appearance from the side.  Prefers frequent moisture and good air flow, forms nice little clumps that shoulkd be delicately handled as the pups can pop off easily
