Dyckia hebdingii in wilderness..

Dyckia hebdingii in nature
Just one single plant, maybe more than 100 years old.
This species never sprouts! This is all done by crown divisions so
all these crowns are in fact the very same plant, same individual.
This picture was not taken by me.
Also notice no rossete  isd perfectly uprigthed and this helps the plant not to hold water
in its center and propitiates the fungus development.
this plant can endure some mild frosts without  any harm in fact it 
is not at easy when living under a perpetual Summer.
It need some freezing cold chilling to show up its vigor and beauty.
