Dyckia encholirioides var. spinosissima
Here Rene Rau a friend of mine and neighbour doing the necessary cleaning.
More than a friend, a brave man.
Cleaning a Dyckia sometimes require, knowledge, skills, courage and a bit of boldness.

Dyckia delicata rubra are the top of my list, the king of my hill...
If I had to have one Dyckia only this would be the one.
Bellow we see the two opposing discs and the flowers stalks emerging from in between them.

Dyckia delicata rubra
Both plants are extremely beautiful and rare.
They both are found way down South in Brazil.
Both are multileaved, they present so many leaves one can not see through them.
Both can take cold....and I will marry them.

This is one of the most beautiful Dyckias of all.
A gift from my Howdy friend way into Texas: Frank.
Maybe our hands never meet, maybe our eyes never see each other.
You are always in my heart.

Little to almost nothing is known about this beauty.
It comes from West in Goiás .
Brazil wilderness is vast and the contry has the most diverse fauna and flora in the world.
there are more Dyckias to be seen than those we know about.
