Dyckia sp Pedreira - Rio Grande do Sul

New, nameless Dyckia species the size of a soccer ball.

These are Dyckias that present multi-leaved rosettes and
its flowers are tiny and yellow and also its seeds are very, very small.
The plants are absolutely gorgeous.
Perfect rosettes like these here are only found in Southern Brazilian Dyckias species.
Just perfect organized or arranged plants.
The plant does not pups and it is very hard to keep.
They live on rocks in a very restricted area.
They are in great danger cause they live on a most looked after red granite rock.
There is already mining work going on there.
