Dyckia marnier-lapostollei is found in small populations in many places in Goiás,
a central state where Brasília is located.
Every population presents regional differences and some are just dazzling.
recently it was found one within the Federal District of Brasília.

Dyckia hb Tarzana by Bill Baker
This is too similar to Dyckia sp Tarzan, I think they are the very same plants.
This is a young plant, adults can be quyite different but not a bit less beautiful and impressive.

Something any dyckia lover dream about....a dream plant.
Most of the best in Hybrid Dyckias has been made in California.
This beauty is no exeption. It came from the largest and the best Dyckia collection
in the land of milk, honey and dreams.Thanks, Steve. I am astonished, open mouthed...perfection beyond any limit!

The spectacular shape of a Dyckia discoide is something to make any mind fly
away from those old and beaten ideas on Dyckias.
The brand new, the never seen before may be astonishing beautiful.
There are more to be seen by the very first time in our wilderness than we all imagine.

Of course this is not a valid name for the plant is not yet described.
..and thanks God not ´cause it has been kept under close observation. No hurry, here!
Native to Santa Catarina Soutwest it was just found ´cause a big dam was built there.
It is a new fresh breeze on the sameness,
new looks, new...novelty in every detail.
Its seeds are seed bird like and the plant shows signals of being close related to another brand new plant and also under the process of description the much bigger one Dyckia magnifica, another true gem.
You do not need to keep on wishing...I do have seeds and you may have some too.
the more people keep it the biiger are the chances the plant will go on..
Today, in nature, it is under severe protection of a new found wildlife park.
Bellow notice the emiting of a flower stalk.
As you can notice the plant forms a disc like structure and it is nice to see two opposing flat dishes.
