The Deuterocohnia genus is comprised of a few generally mat-forming succulents from Argentina and Bolivia. The genus is named for the German botanist Ferdinand Julius Cohn. They are rosette-forming terrestrial Bromeliads with heavily spined leaf margins. The flowers, on a short inflorescence, are green and inconspicuous.

Deuterocohnia need full sun to light shade with a well drained soil mix. They are very drought tolerant but do best with average water during spring and summer. Limit water during winter.
