Deuterocohnia brevifolia (Abromeitiella brevifolia) is a dwarf, succulent, bromeliad growing terrestrially. It forms 2 in. (3-5) cm wide rosettes of lance-shaped to triangular stiff, fleshy, leaves that proliferate via offsets to form a compact rounded 'mound' up to 35-71 in. (90-180 cm) in diameter. These colonies from a distance often look soft and moss-like but they are anything but soft and cushy and touching or sitting on a plant would but more like encountering a bed of nails. Inconspicuous green flowers are borne on short inflorescences. A. brevifolia, distinguished by its relatively smooth leaf margins, has both a large and a small form, the latter (often with many marginal teeth) .

In humid, seasonally wet areas the little rosettes can be green, glabrous and glossy but in more arid locations the plants leaf surfaces can posses varying amounts of trichomes giving the rosettes a greenish-gray appearance.
