New species are found almost in a dayly base as new connoisseurs, entrepreneurs, and Dyckia lovers are also getting more and more.
Dyckia use to habit some of the more inaccessible places.
some months ago I was told a Dyckia was living downtown Apiúna, a small town in Santa Catarina.
The plant was living in a granitic and basalt rock formation looking like a Sugar loaf (Pão de Açucar) in Rio de Janeiro. I doubted initially and went to confirm and it was really there, a new brand new, never seen Dyckia species downtown a small town!!!
The place is so steep I could not took pictures of the best plants as simply I could not remove any hand from the rock in order to prevent falling.
Now I am arranging some specialized help and also the proper weather conditions to get back there.
I do have much raw material, species the hybridizer pioneers did not count with.
You can have them by requiring the seed list I have always updated.
A Dyckia does not show its final looks until it has bloomed,
