Dyckia encholirioides var. spinosissima
Smaller than Dyckia encholirioides type and tremendously rare.It is found in nature only on a very small portion of a wild Atlantic beach here close to where I leave.
This variety is not described. some people turn up their nose when I show species, varieties they and the Science never saw before but this is precisely the the best I offer to
those who dare to see the new and the brand new.
We are not used to this fort this is rarer than the rare new plants I show here.
Dare to be a pioneer and cultivate this regal beauty.
Seeds are available under request

This is an extremely beautiful formed Dyckia sp from Tabaí-RS
The straight leaves look like swords....
It is a Dyckia maritima affinis for sure.
What a shaping!

Dyckia sp from São João do Triunfo , Paraná.
This plant was found on a giant turtle shell like rock amid a Brazilian pine tree wood.
A very beautiful plant. Grows no more than the size of a fosteriana.

This is where we live. Dyckia delicata and me.
I live in Joinville, Northeast Santa Catarina , close to the Atlantic Ocean.
Joinville is the largest Santa Catarina City and the third in the entire South.
Dyckia delicata lives some 687 km South southwest from me.
It takes some 10 hours trip to get there.
Without help no one would find out the plant in nature, and this is a blessing.
The plant is safe, once there one can only take pictures.

This is the majestic impressive Dyckia delicata rubra.
A feast for the eyes...
and no puping here.
The two pictures above were taken just now and it is quite cloudy powder raining. this evidentiates the reddish and hides the scales.
Bellow these two pictures were made in a sunny day.

The German mind and scientists are known as crazy about accuracy and details.
They die but do not lie!
This issue brought a comprehensive report on Dyckia delicata.
A visit a German man and me made to the delicatas to show the world what is all about it.
these picture here showing the mag and some of my delicatas were taken during a dark cloudy rainy day
and the plants show less scales and whiteness.
Look. no puping anywhere.....on the mag pages and in my garden too
Delicatas do not pup.
Danke Freunde. In Ihnen können wir alle vertrauen
I have friends around the world and all and each are my guest here to visit
our wilderness and take pictures.
