Finally named!

Dyckia hb Fantasma

Fantasma is the Portuguese (we in Brazil speak Portuguese) word for Ghost.
The name was given by a follower of this blog.
This is one of the most spectacular plants I´ve seen and was entirely homemade by myself.
It was a challenge and and now it is a conquered dream: to make ever better looking plants from parent plants that are among the best looking species.
Dyckia goehringii true one and Dyckia fosteriana-fosteriana.

I have two sprouts from this plant. You can devise them among the leaves here...


  1. Absolutely fantastic for sure!....Even larger than I first imagined after seeing your hand.

  2. Hardly I see anything as beautiful...
