An extreme flat Dream Dyckia fosteriana

This is flat!
This breathtaking plant is no more that five centimeters or two inches high.
What induces a plant to assume this form?
This form of crown like seem to be a gene determined phenotype.
Some Dyckias fosterianas due assume this appearance and some have leaves curved or arched upwards. We say this is one more intriguing Dyckia secret and one of their most
beautiful masks.
This specimen took this too serious. Here it was under light rain.
