Dyckia Perau da Cabrita
The name is not valid. This plant comes from Santa Catarina Middle West. It is a superb plant and proves there are many many more to be seen in the wilderness. Bears yellow tiny flowers in a mostly branched spike. The seeds are very small even for a Dyckia and it belongs to those that produce seeds that are tiny like bird seed. Germinates easily and promptly and tolerates coldness down to zero centigrade for one night or another. A fantastic superb plant from Santa Catarina. The concept that the most beautiful toothy dyckias comes from Central Brazil is absolutely erroneous. This one comes from South in Santa Catarina. This pictured plant is a young one and did not flower yet.
