A wonderful Hybrid I made here...I do love hybrids

Hybrids do preserve the species for they diminish the collect pressure on them in wilderness. Besides they are more resistant to misleads and prune to adapt any cultural management. Most are evem mopre beautiful than their parents. Species are only preserved in the fields, N o collection preserves any Dyckia species. When out of their native fields any plant is suspicious to say the very least. I do love hybrids.

This is Nasty an American made marvelous plant.

Below we see nameless Hybrid I made myself.

My "Howdy" friend from Texas, Frank...a drear friend of my and a wonderful grandfather


Brittle Star X  Arizona

Well, I live surrounded by Dyckias in nature and I do love hybrids.
Nothing like hybrids to preserve species.
Hybrids are prune to adapt to cultivation and most of all, they are pretty good looking.
None preserves species under culture for once a plant leaves the rock field it is not trusted anymore as species...Species are on the field!

I love my friend Frank and he is beloved by God.
 I embrace you dear.

Bellow I show my Dyckia hb Milky Way

Dyckia pottiorum........a marvel of the rocks

 This is a much than splendid one plant. It is unique in many ways. It grows this way in natures and it carries the world on its back. I could say this is  a sea crab plant. On its back are the flowers stalk and also the leftovers of old flowers stalks. The plant emits sprouts and caries them all on its back too.

Recently I came to know the plants on the spot the holytype came from were all eaten to their roots by stray cattle. The terrible dry killed all the othe edible plants and those poor animals had to rely on Dyckias to survive. In that place none was left. Some super white ones were find nearby byt the red ones, grey and green ones are vanished all eaten by the cows.
