It is now producing many many flower stalks.
Never it bloomed so plentifully.
This is a big basin like pot and it is a sight to behold.
People insist in saying they have goehring but theirs is a pale reflexion of what a true goehring might be.
The fake goehring is a plant produced in USA and sold to people in Southeast Asia.
Seeds may have come from Brazil but uncontrolled produced.
the same famous dyckia seller produced the Famous Britte star fake that is now getting around the world.

We have seen people being fooled by a "Bromeliad Mafia" who can not tolerate any obstacle.
Specially people who reveals the true.
I myself I favor the hybrids in Dyckias as those protect the type forms and tend to be much more beautiful.
See the Dyckia flower stalks here. They are green and they are very slender.
Dyckia are a fantastic bromeliad beside being eternal and forever like the diamonds they do not arbor water thank. This is a crucial characteristic for the human wealth.
