Note: Probably imported from Venezuela in the early 90's. It is green for part of the year and turns red if stressed or flowering.It does produce few pups.
- Note: Dutch Vandervort (2012-06-16) - Genus is definitely Dyckia. Species is obscure. Floral characteristics should reveal species. But, then, what if it is a hybrid. Leaves look as if they experienced hail when plant was younger. (Sent: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Note: Dutch Vandervort (2012-06-16) - I forgot to ask, do you have a key? (Sent: email@example.com)
- Note: Carlo Morici (2012-06-16) - Yes, it can be hail - we got some little hail in Winter 2010-2011. If so, it grew surprisingly slow in one year. No, I don't have a key.
Thank you for your comments.
