Dycia excelsa - a jewel on the rocks of Cuiabá-MT

This huge plant lives on rocks right in the middle of the South America heart.
I may get totally colored of red and silver and pinkish only when suffering from dehydration ands scorching sun. The species has no red form but a clear red phase.
Owns one of the most beautiful species name (heavenly) Dyckia excelsa.
Born right in the geodesic center of South America, a terribly hot place.
The plant gets huge and forms thick trunks. Some found specimens are thought to be several hundreds years old. An extreme rupicolous species.
