Dyckia 'Naked Lady'

Dyckia 'Naked Lady' (encholirioides X brevifolia ) or sometimes called Dyckia Nude Lady

I watch ebay for dyckia's like a lot of people do looking for plants I don't have. I notice that this just does not sell.

In the last 3 months it was listed 7 times but only sold once and the seller (it was not me) just got $7. during the same time, 255 dyckia's were listed with a Sell-Through of 71 %.

Dyckia Cherry Coke was listed 5 times with a Sell-Through of 100% and its way more common and got a lot more $. A large pot full got $90 at one time and $81 for about the same size plant at some other time. Can you believe it $90 and $81 for Dyckia Cherry Coke. what were those people thinking of

I don't why people don't like this dyckia, I think it's a very different kind of dyckia. Nice light green in color and no spines on the leafs but just a pointed leaf tip.

I have had Dyckia 'Naked Lady' for years getting larger and larger but not one flower on it. Now after years of growing it and moving up in pot size year after year it's going to flower.

The plant don't look its best as I have not cleaned up after this winter.

Did anyone ever have this dyckia flower and did it make good seed?

I never got excited about them until I see your full grown plant.
It definitely has a beautiful presence when this large. You normally see a straggly pup, and so can't envision how it will look.
