Dyckai goehringii under the morning mist

Intensively silver  endumentes plants show their true color when wet.
Here the plant is drinking, in fact. All silver plants use these thricomas to allows them to capture the water from the air.
SDpecial care must be takem when foliar fertilizing them as they really absorb the water and the fertilizer and a bit mot may be too much.
this plant is just recently  travelled South to my garden and it is it very firt time blooming but 
its flowers will allow me to get true Dyckia goehringii seeds.
