Our friend, Constantino had told me about a rare Dyckia
which is native to his homeland, Dyckia reitzii
I had no idea that this species came from a very high mountain,
that could withstand a very low temperature on the peak.
In October 2006, I got a very beautiful Dyckia from Tropiflora nursery in USA
named Dyckia reitzii f. rubra
Here is my plant.
In the same shipment, I received a remarkable bigeneric hybrid
a cross between Dyckia reitzii f. rubra x Deuterocohnia brevispicata
This hybrid names x Dyckcohnia 'Bones Mahogany'
For one who would like to see how another parent look like,
this is one of my Deuterocohnia brevispicata, it's quite a huge plant with 3 feet in diameter.
The colouration of Dyckia reitzii seem to pass on perfectly red to its offspring,
while the charming size of Deuterocohnia could make the hybrid
a real red monster, with nearly 2 feet in diameter.
Questions and answers about cultivation, propagation, fertilization, diseases and pestcontrol etc.
