I´ve got this as Dyckia marnier lapostollei but I have some consideration here.
The plant is said to have been found by Bill Baker or taken to California from Brazil by him.
Dyckia marnier -lapostollei is found in may places in Central Brazil.
Many regional variations are found and known but all of them are at least four times larger than this plant is.
All Dyckia marnier-lapostllei are in fact imposing plants and not small ones.
This is an extremely beautiful plant and it well may be something else but marnier-lapostollei.
This plant is a traveller.
It went from the heart of our Brazilian central highland to USA and from there it went to Southeast Asia and Japan before reaching Europe and getting back to where it belongs.
It made a fantastic journey around the globe, a globetrotter.
We´ve all only just begun to know Dyckias!
