New found, never seen before. Pictures taken today, 10 hours ago.
This is just an appetizer as I took more than 500 pictures.
A totally new to Science Dyckia species!
They were found high on a mountain at 966 meters high above sea level in Rio do Sul, Santa Catarina.
I was born in Rio do Sul August 30th, 1954.
This plant has a special meaning to.
If I had to describe it I would say a mix of reitzii and fosteriana.
This was a special hot day there but less than a week ago it snowed to
accumulate 30cm on the ground.
This is Djenes Dalfovo down there.
I must thank my friends,
Paulo Fernando Cé who first found the plant,
Djnes and Mileide Dalfovo who led me there.

Today during this morning in Gramado-RS, close to where delicatas live.
Brazil is not a tropical place all over and less yt all throught the year.
We do have cold weather.

Just photographed, a minute from now.
the flower stalk benefits from the late rainy weather.
Reitzii loves to bloom during winter, why? the must be a reason as nothing is for free in nature.
We are going to have self pollinates seeds here as I am prepared to isolate this beauty.
I am also planning some never imagined hybrids here.
My mind flies.
What about a delicata rubra one in here?
The first delicata rubra flowers will meet the last reitzii rubra ones.
