Dyckia retroflexa

This southern beauty is splitting its head in two. This is a way to
incline heads in order to avoid the water the might be kept around the
leave pits and also duplicate the number of flowers. Later each head
will turn into two plants. Two genetically equal plants.
Dyckia do not melt after flowering like most bromeliads and agaves do.
Dyckias are truly impressive plants from any way we look them.
