Dyckia fosteriana and me



OH pretty baby...
"You're just too good to be true
can't take my eyes off of you
you'd be like heaven to touch
oh, I wanna hold you so much
at long last love has arrived
and I thank god I'm alive
you're just too good to be true
I can't take my eyes off of you.
.."


This is an invitation to visit heavens.
Come with me I will show you how it is there up high. Take my hands, watch your steps and prepair yourself to be dizzy, mesmerized and deeply in love to fosteriana in wilderness....come....

Dyckia fosteriana habitat

 Yes, an anthurium and look who is down there.

 A bromeliad...

Together, living together a white and a black fosteriana....all in Brazilian wilderness.


.

Dyckia fosteriana

 Yes, I was in seven heavens...

 Look these spines above.

This one gave up from some of its spines....

 Solitary stars....

A pool of Dyckias.





 What a marvel, isn´t it?

Compare to these ones below.



I like these pictures, they reveal variations......


Black ones and super white spines...

Ah, Dyckia fosteriana......


An Autunm bloom, a rarity.


 A lake may be formed here when it rains

 Orchid and fosterianas.

 What a rock!

 Cacti and lichens


 Above a Dyckia fosteriana bearing narrow leaves and huge teeth.

Below, broad leaves and  beautiful dentition.

Below a solitary star....

Dyckia fosterina

Almost invisible
Oh, do not worry about being suffocated by grasses. They live  high in the plato, more than 1000 meters and it gets cold, cold enough to eliminate most of the grasses whose decayed material serve as substrate for the Dyckia.



 Here above the leaves are narrow and longer than usual.


Defying all rules and blooming during Autumn.

 Can you spot this Dycki8a fosteriana clump?

 Arenite  carved by water.


Tillabdsias and other bromelidea...



Above you can devise two different forms of fosteriana


 Brom and cati.


Me and and and...my belly

What a substrate all this decayde material will make.

Would you say fosterina besides magnific?


 Pot connoisseurs, would you tell this is Dyckia fosteriana?
We barely began to know what is what and why and constantly science changes mind.
These are both genuine Dyckia fosteriana and aren´t they breathtaking beautiful?


A super dark one Dyckia fosteriana


Inconspicuous amid grasses this is a true beauty...
Would you tell this is a true genuine Dyckia fosteriana?


On the fosteriana rock....

 Oh, a Tillandsia!

 Sinningia glaucescens, blooming one....

 A blooming Dyckia fosterina making  seeds...


Look straight here...this is a almost spineless Dyckia fosteriana...



 As you can observe Dyckia fosterina do looks strange even in its home....
Here it is almost toothless and  grew larger than its fellow around..


Yes, all true and  legitimate Dyckia fosteriana.
