Dyckia sp - Piratini - II

The color of this gaucho plant is strikingly attractive, sole green.
Lives on a cliff close to Piratini in Rio Grande do Sul
One can assume the plant is this shade of green for the lack of
nitrogen in the substrate. Dyckias are eager nitrogen feeders.
Most plants remove it from the air some must have it stuck in the substrate to reach for it through the root system.
