This guy breeds true, the seeds germinate promptly. It is a self breeding and a compulsive shooter cloning itself madly.
A single plant makes you to be out of room in a very short period of time.
Besides being a gorgeous plant and wearing big spines they are not humongous as the name may suggests.
Those are Dyckia grandidentata seedlings.
This plant comes from the Cerrado and plants from that region use to take ages to get used to milder Southern weather conditions.
Even so the plant produced seeds that germinated well.
The teeth are not that impressive as the name suggests.
There are many more Dyckia species bearing bigger spines.
The species is a charming and enchanting one, colorful and very attractive.
The plant comes in green too.
The red form seems to be the most common one.
