When will dyckia's flower?

When will dyckia's flower? Well for me most will flower in the spring and some in the summer. But I do have few that will flower in the fall (10/25/2010).

I should add I'm in the Northern Hemisphere. Some of the people who look at my blog are in the  Southern Hemisphere, but it's October everywhere.

They are:

 Dyckia goiana sp goiana
Flowers have not opened yet so no photo
 Dyckia Icicle
 Dyckia Icicle
 Dyckia marnier-lapostollei
 Dyckia marnier-lapostollei
Dyckia sp Leme EL 1992
Flowers have not opened yet so no photo

Len, I've never had a dyckia flower ( namely because I have no mature Dyckia ), but how long in general does it take from initial pollination to the time the pod is mature and ready to throw seed?

Len, Also does that tag say D. Icicle as when I did a brief search they all looked like this: http://www.jacksonvillezoo.org/botanical/plants/icicle_bromeliad/

Just curious as it has a more wide ML type look. You're the expert I was just wondering.

Is your question, how long does it get seed to form once the flowers open? Just a few week.
How long from seed to flower? I don't know for sure, as I don't grow them from seed.
