Yes! They are! ..but some are not!

The vast majority of Dyckias species is self fertile. They may produce fruits and fertile seeds using their own pollen. We also say they are auto-compatible plants. Also these very same plants adore strange Dyckia pollen. They love to love strangers! they are self fertile and auto-compatible and als...

Bonjour, comment êtes-vous garçon?

Liberté, égalité, fraternité: toujours! Do not get so admired. At that time Cerrad Dyckia were for nothing, were nothing to wotha a second look at. Bush men wandered that region looking for cacti and orchids. Some German and also some Brazilian bushmen. Dyckias are yet not known! We just lifted the ...

Hybrids and pure strain

Dearest Joachin I think otherwisely: - Many Dyckias here,(and when I say this most Dyckias lovers get sad),are so grass like they are only obvious or conspicuous when flowering. I do not want them! I call them "capinzentas"or something like grass like ones. So, not all Dyckia hybrids or tr...

Sanga, your brevifolias are just great!

Almost all Dyckias split in too much water. t seems it is not just too much water but also too much nitrogen and this two factors altogether, combined, leads to the leave spliting. In nature this plant lives as a reofitic one. They have to cope with very harsh situations and may be under water for w...

Just the Orthophytum drives me out of my mind ´cause they get out of good shape after u had done all the best to culture them....all of a ...

Sanga, your plants are superb ones!

Sanga your plants bear all the good qualities a s very good Dyckia seedling may have! do not any culling but try to maintain them or give them to someone who cares. They have a very good shape and architeture. A good structured Dyckia may be hard to find. They are perfectly round and lovely to the e...
