Dyckia pectinata

Dyckia pectinata
The comb like Dyckia bears conspicuous and rubbery soft spines.
One of the rarest and most beautiful Brazilian Dyckias.
A green form is said to be found recently.

Dyckia goehringii
Recently a hybrid was produded ramdomly as a result of an opened fertilization evolving these two marvelous Dyckia species. The result is shown on the previous posting.
This sort of hybridizitiuon is farr too common with Dyckias that live close together in
a garden. Dyckias hybridize readily and promptly.
Dyckias are always in love to next door neighbour.
