A most beautiful Encholirium sp

Encholiriuns are all solely Brazilian plants. They are not found anywhere else in the world.
They are restricted to central east and northeast regions in Brazil. Some are wide spread with its area and some have a very restricted area. Some are huge plants and some are amid the smallest bromeliads. This we see here is not yet described and it is pure white. Its scales are so tiny the whole plant shines under the sun. Encholiriuns are  very close related to Dyckias and they cross in between them making fascinating bigeneric hybrids. I am looking for a Dyckia goehring and this beauty to get together in order to make hybrid plants.

Dyckia hyb Constantino it is a self fertilized Dyckia hb Brittle Star flower

Dyckia hb Brittle Star, its flower stalk proves it is a Dyckia fosteriana descent.

Dyckia hb Ocean Foam

I just cleaned it and many many leaves were removed for they are too breakable 
almost to the point you touch it and it breaks as crystal.
Ocean foam is a light blue colored hybrid from a delicata and a Dona Francisca cross.
As you can see it we have a seven heads plant. 
Next Summer I expect it to be in its full glory again.
Many many long narrow light blue colored leaves.
