I cultivate this baby under the heavy rain here in the South of Brazil.
It is happily enjoying the cares.
As you can see it bloomed, its flowers are a nothing comparing to the plant itself.
...and the baby sprouts!
This was one and two years ago and guess what? They are exactly as the day they were separated from the mother plant. They seem to think: Shall I live or shall I die?
Twelve of them sing this in chorus. But maybe now, this Spring..
Hormones? Yes all of them I tried with no success.
Now these babies will get together attached to their mother.
Let them clump!
Here in Joinville Dyckias are all a challenge. We have a climate suit for Anthurium and Phylodendrum here in Joinville, Northeastern Santa Catarina.
Yes, We have native Dyckia but this one up here is a baby from our Cerrado in Central Brazil. Climate is quite another in there.
