Dyckia fosteriana nivosa - Lapa-PR

Dyckia fosteriana nivosa is a very small Dyckia species.
One of the most outstanding plants in spite of being small.
Seeds are also smaller that the Dyckia fosterian type.
Flower stalks and the flowers are all much smaller
A cutie cutie Dyckia and a true species.
It was find thriving on an rocky outcrop amid a fig plantation
in Lapa-Paraná. No other Dyckia fosteriana nivosa population
was found in wilderness. This only one population is now under extreme
care and protection of the landlord.
