A wonderful picture taken by southern vertical wall climbers from Caxias do Sul-RS .
thanks to Lise Severo. Here this granitic wall shows some beautiful Dyckias. Notice their sizes comparing with the climber.

Red, white and variegated plants are so sought after that the green ones are rare. ...and they
are gorgeous. Long numerous soft golden thorns on light green foliage turn this
seedling into a spectacular promise.

Full variegated Dyckias are rare amid the rare notably the colored ones.
Most variegations are half-moon ones and not a complete 360°. Also, most variegated plants are white and green or ivory and green. Full multicolored variegations are strikingly beautiful.
This is a seedling I was lucky enough to get myself.
Another point is, will its seeds be full variegated too?
Dyckias try to set flower stalks on the point the variegation is not well set and this is the main
reason seeds produced by variegated plants are not variegated. We shall see it for sure.
This is a Dyckia monticola.

Dyckia brevifolia X Dyckia delicata
Dyckias are great, great in all details and aspects. I favor hybrid plants. in fact, many of the plants described as true species are in fact natural hybrids. The parent plants are long gone and not to see around anymore but the hybrids are there. Dyckias have a clear role in nature. Dyckia mare pioneers. they bring life to the rocks, they bring the trees to them and once the trees are established dyckias are vanished, long dead in shadows
Hybrid Dyckias are almost always more beautiful and more adaptable as they carry richer genetics. Hybrids preserve nature and natural plants in nature.
Yes, a too young seedling to tell more but it does show seasonal yellow colors, rubber-like super white teeth and charming shape.
