All within a hybrid Dyckia seedling


A new made hybrid continues hidding its face and look till it has bloomed.
We can´t say much until there for it may go into a drastic transformation.
Meanwhile a thing is absolutely sure, it may change and change but always turning into a better look.

Just a little twist here and there....just a little twist like this:

Dyckiq hebdingii Arco-íris (rainbow)


This astonishing beautiful hebdingii was found when a small seedling in nature by Djenes Dalfovo and me.
At that time the small seedling presented just two or three pinkish stripes.
Look, it turned out to be this marvel.

Dyckia Brittle Star X Dyckia goehringii white.
 
Of course I am much proud of it, wouldn´t you?
 
Beauty, that is all that matters....I want your eyes on it and I want them to be bathed in beauty.
Better and the best of all this is a Dyckia and this means living is eternal or very close to it. 
 
Flowers are a celebration of life and joy in Dyckias.
 
Aging? Dyckias just get better and better with the passing years.
 
Dyckias!
Nothing compares!

A new Dyckia species is just found ...going wilder than wild.


Yes, a brand new found one.
Walter Miguel Kranz, Clenilson souza and me...
Notice the leaf formation.
It is almost distic and better than that a different way to show the foliage.


It is in Ibirama, Santa Catarina.


 
The yellow flowers belong to an orchid, oncidium, also native to the area.

They look like a quetzal tail.
