Dyckia potiorum 

This is for sure a marvel in leaves and spines.
Here we see two adult and blooming plants and we can compare them
 with my hands size 7 1/2 (seven and half).
You can spot a small sprout in upper picture.
This is not a lateral one but a stolom.
Potiorum stoloms are extremely short, just a few millimeters long.

Another new found Dyckia in Mato Grosso do Sul


This new one also lives close to Aquidauana in Mato Grosso do Sul.
It was found by the Brazilian botanist Vilson Müller.
Here in his garden.



From Aquidauana, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.


This is a Dyckia sp from Aquidauana region.
Notice it is  much striated presenting the Dyckia lines on both sides of the leaves.
It is also a stolon producer and most of the Mato Grosso do Sul originated species.
the  notable here is the spination. The spines just appear one the one proximal third
of the leave length. The two distal parts of the leaves are not dented at all.


 This wonderful novelty was found by Vilson Müller and here it is in his garden in Barra do Sul-SC.



Dyckia encholirioides

Distic!

Dyckia brevifolia Cv yellow glow seeds


Too much too albine seedlings?


I think some  new looks may appear. Let us  see.
 


Dyckia estevesii and Dyckia potiorum, together to be compared


 I am sure this is the first time ever these two are shown this way:
living together, growing together..
.

Dyckia potiorum leaves are much thicker and succulent than estevesii ones.
also potiorum leaves do not fell down but gets up and backwards.
 Both plants are fanned but  way differently.
Note: here both are deep wet under rain, potiorum presents many many scales.

Dyckia fosteriana-fosteriana Cv Star of Brazil


Dyckia fosteriana-fosteriana Cv Star of Brazil 

This is my pride and my honor . 
This is  the result of the cross of two regional Dyckia fosteriana varieties.
It is really a perfection on leaves. Notice the many leaves, the shape, color, spines....
Isn´t it something to be proud of?




Dyckia potiorum

This wonder on leaves, Dyckia potiorum can be found in several colors, red, chestnut, silver, green, green/yellow. some richly endumented and some nude as this one you see here and the rarest amid all potiorum.



Dyckia potiorum are all distic and prostrated.
Odd, to say the least.
Their opposing leaves tend to touch and form  and form an heart shaped  view.
This is just spectacular, new and never seen before.
 One of the best looking leaf arrangements off all.
Besides all this the plant is really small what makes it  a most wished presence
amid the plants of a windowsill.

Dyckia potiorum, the beauty on a tray....


Dyckia potiorum produces stoloms, very very short ones.
One may think they emit side sprouts, but not. These are stoloms!
We have much to know and find out about Dyckias.
Dyckia stolonifera is also native to Mato Grosso do Sul.



Have you ever dreamed about something like this?
 

See this plant, in spite of its dwarf size, is blooming.


Apr 9, 2014


Cute is the word to describe this pretty potiorum plant, an adult blooming one.
A plant to fit any sunny windowsill.
Something out from this plain world.
Something  out from  a dream...



Simply the best, better than all the rest.....


Dyckia potiorum

Something to say wow!
" You are the best, better than all the rest.
simply the best. All that I ever wanted..."

Dyckia potiorum



Dyckia potiorum
As one can easily see and notice a Dyckia population is not like an army of the very same looking individuals. Here the green ones are rare and just a very very few amid the "normal" colored ones.
Not long ago the idea was if you see one member you saw all members of a Dyckia population.
No, no way!



Can you see, every plant is initiating a flower stalk?
