Dyckia sp gloriosa

Dyckia sp gloriosa

I am repeating this but I think this is worthwhile.
This plant is native to Northeastern Santa Catarina uphills.
I found this in wilderness just half an hour trip from my garden.
It was living at exactele 1001 meters high from sea level.
This plant is a show to any eye. Colorful year around its leaves are just like ribbons
that lay down on the substrate forming a disc of colorful leaves. 
The underleaves are contrasting silver.
Nothing compares to this beauty....

  1. Constantino, How wide is this plant? I thought it had a look similar to choristaminea but you said it was much larger? That pot looks 30cm wide by my view so was curious. A superb looking beauty!
