Dyckia hb Maria Fogosa



Flava, flavíssima!!!!!


I do love the xantic individuals.
Flavism is found  amid green populations. Some are  situational and are consequence of insulation, bad nutrition but some is for true.
This is a xantica Dyckia  gastaldiana ( the plant is under description).
We found flavism amid this species and brevifolia, encholirioide and we heard about  Dycki alba too.




Bellow we see  a xantic Dyckia encholirioides specimen
