Dyckia, a hybrid plant and a moss covered rock.

Here one can notice the substrate I use, just organic matter.


Dyckias native to Southern in Brazil

These plants that seem to be four in each tray were single headed ones.
Dyckia hebdingii and Dyckia domfelicanensis they both produce  clone plants by dividing their heads.
These are old and magnificent plants.

New found new dyckia species from Ibirama-Santa Catarina Brazil

 Extremely rare and ultra endangered. It as found only on a steep slope close by a high traffic highway the Br-470. Less than a dozen individuals were there and most were destroyed by the road maintenance workers.
They removed loose roks in order to prevent them from falling on the lane and also removed the plants. What was rare turned to be super ultra rare as no other population was found .
Dyckia breevifolia grows some 5 hundred meters bellow on the river banks and also Dyckia ibiramensis is found some 11kilometers away.

Leaves are like long ribons and the flower stalks present red bracteas.

Today in midwinter the weather was balmy and spring like.
Here I am, at last.



Dyckia hebdingii Nenê blue

Something to gasp in sheer admiration... it was found on Senhor Nenê lands.
A true nothing to compare.

Seeds are available under specieal request


Dyckia pottiorum, a surrealistic view

It looks like those sea crabs that disguise its enemies by attaching  algae and coral parts on itself.
Dyckia pottiorum is an amazing one and presents no equal.
A must have to be added to any collection.
A true sight to behold.
