This is a Dyckia retzii rubra juvenile seedling!
Hard to believe but this plant gooes under quite a transformation during its young life.
spines will turn black and get shorter, leaves will get wider.
No, not a cultivated seedling!
Dyckias...These creatures of the Light are mostly Brazilian. Many of them are still to be seen by the very first time. Come on in. Let us see some. This Blog was created to show you the plants in my garden and also help you to keep happier Dyckias. This is the beginning of the book:THE ALLURING DYCKIAS. I may share some seeds with you. This way we help Dyckias to be known, understood and cherished. Email me at: email@example.com Constantino Gastaldi -Brazil ... 55-47-3425-8085
