Dyckia Podrella The Witch

 This is Dyckia Podrella The Witch
Here even the overall aspect denotes a Witch thing:
Weeds, dead leaves and almost toothless ones... Dyckia Podrella.
Podrella is so mean....

Dyckia Barriga Verde a new Santa Catarina born hybrid

 Dyckia Barriga-Verde
Hybrid! Dyckia encholirioides X Dyckia brevifolia.
Both  parents are Santa Catina native and who are born here are know as Barriga-Verde, literally Green Belly as  our ancient infantry men used to wear a large green ribbon around their waist.
 I am a Barriga-Verde myself.
Red and green are also Santa Catarina colors.

The perfect Autumn day was just breaking throught...

 Dyckia  fosteriana-fosteriana
..always a breathtaking beautiful plant.

All by myself made..still too young to predict the last look but
we can say: dazzling gorgeous, can´t we?

From Germany!
This plant was made in Brazil and sent to Germany to live and
then it was send back to Brazil.
Back home!
What a lucky girl!
Of course Hybrid!
The name  is up to my German friend to decide;
Dyckia Feuer? Dyckia Fire?

The esplendor of this hybrid is something to move us ahead
this is far far away from the obvious looks of the old hybrids.
Huge golden teeth on red brilliant red leaves.

 Have you ever saw something like this?
what could be bettered here?
Color, shape and form?
Maybe spines
...red instead of golden
No! No, perfection is ever a step ahead!

Goehringii and Pectinata.
Something to dream about.
You can do it much better yet...
this here is a small short stroll from the obvious...
Look..what a sight!

Dyckia Raquel a hybrid I myself made

 Dyckia Raquel
Hybrid I myself made using Dyckia sp burle-marxii aff.
The seedlings has much to improve but they are still worth to follow.
Spines, will improve getting even bigger and whiter than they are today and the shape must be bettered too.
I love it and I am sure this is  new in many ways.

The splitting head of Dyckia fosteriana-fosteriana Star of Brazil

 Dyckia fosteriana-fosteriana Star of Brazil
Now initiating  the head splitting.....

Dyckia goehringii X Dyckia fosteriana-fosteriana hybrid

This beautiful and yet very young seedling has much left to improve.
Its mother plant Dyckia goehringii bears not as much leaves as the father plant Dyckia fosteriana-fosteriana so this beautiful baby begins to show the advantages of a nice hybrid...notice the many leaves already at show.

 Dyckia velascana
This is one of the best variegated known Dyckias.
A good variegation is still to be found in Dyckia and
this is the best we find up to this date.

 Dyckia sp marnier-lapostollei aff.
An imponent plant. There is a Hechtia that looks close to this Dyckia.
Dyckias are unbeatable in many ways ant they do not melt after blooming.
they do not have reaqsons to die so they live up to close to eternity....
