Dyckia sp - Cascata - Northeastern Santa Catarina

I love this small jewel.
These are young seedlings from Northeast Santa Catarina.
It gets redder than this and the rosettes looks like parabolic antens
to capture all the sun rays.
Look at the wideness of the leaves and the spination.
A very good looking species.
Strikingly beautiful in fact.
These plants maybe the only ones alive.
They were rescued from the ashes of a campfire.

I didn´t believe my eyes when I first met this princess but it was real.
I had to touch it, have it, love it....

From Santa Catarina with love.....
