What a mind!
Never I saw a mind like the one I saw in Arkansas
This is a young adult and not yet blooming plant.
Dyckia hb Liz Taylor has this plant as mother plant and inherited its form and big size.
Dyckia hb Liz Taylor was fathered by a Dyckia delicata rubra plant.
I named those wonderful hybrid plants the day the Actress died.
The plants were already there and they were already showing some unique beauty.
I already had sent seeds to the monster ill minded man in Arkansas.
He knew all the time all seeds I sent to him were hybrids.
I do not need to say in any envelope(thousands of them the seed were open pollinated).
He knew that. When I wrote type It meant from the type plant collected not type seed!
He knew of it always all the time.
He also noticed the sleedlings were not any bit looking as type forms since the early beginning. He knew it precisely.
I got astonished when I saw him selling as pure bred plants and by my back!!!!
I must do all my best to avoid that mistake.
He is still a beginner!! He knows nothing of a delicata!
What a pretentious mind!
Those were all seeds produced in my garden.
Where I keep more then 200 species!
He would share the profits.
I was asked not to send seed to any one else.I used to send lots and for free.
One of the mean minded monster guy conditions was I should stop sending seeds to any other people.
I sent thousands of Fosteriana seeds to him to be shared to friend all over the world as Dyckia fosteriana Christmas.
You may have got some too.
I did as I as told.
Guess what? Never a dime and I asked the guy what was going on.
He began to act as he really is from that moment on
He posted the last envelope contents I send him, recently at FB.
..and I was the one who owed him....wow!
Well I was fooled. I do not want anyone else to be.
He sells hybrids, wonderful ones as being delicatas true ones.
He acts like he is expert in delicatas.
He never even saw one a live one, let aside touche one!
He is a beginner in all senses and an evil minded man.
There is no other word to say it.
No seedling! Big flowering adult healthy plants.
There had never being one there!
As that saying:
THEY DO NOT BEAR A SAW LIKE THAT.
