Dyckia estevesii





Finely after almost 3 years it's going to product a pup. YEA

Cryptanthus pseudoscaposus















I just picked up this Cryptanthus pseudoscaposus and I have not seen it before. I got it because its weird. Unfortunately I broke the flower stem getting it home. If you look close you can see it flowed on a stem and produced pups on it like a Orthophytum might do. It not a pretty plant but if might be interesting to use in making hybrids.

unknown variegated dyckia


Not my plant, but a plant I saw at a local bromeliad nursery.
It was not for sale. I want one, anyone have one for sale?
