Dyckia reitzii rubra juvenile leaves and adult ones

The plant above is an adult one but it presents juvenile leaves. Why?
´Cause it crested and the leaves got back to the young type.
Notice they are longer, the spines are more conspicuous and leaves are narrower.


Here above and bottom you see both plants.
The one to the left presents juvenile leaves and that to the right presents its wonderful adult leaves.

Below the plant bearing adult looking leaves.
These pictures were taken today, under rain.
