Peter Tristram ... "I got this species from a few sources including this one from KK, direct from Peru. I have another one in bloom from Halle BG in Germany and they look the same. Its another interesting species for the collector."
Chris Larson ... "One of the neat TVs from Karel Knize. T. curvispica. Subtle but I like it.
A lithophyte from around Balsas in Peru at an altitude of 1200m. The altitude is a bit low for good growing outside here but high enough to try in a protected spot."
