Potted this little Dyckia ‘Naked Lady’ F2 into a rather large container this morning. It’s called ‘Naked Lady’ because it doesn’t have any spines along it’s leaf edges, which is uncommon for dyckia. 

This dyckia grows to be about one foot tall and wide so it should look nice once it matures. I also left this little native ground cover with it, in hopes that it will grow and spill out over the sides of the container and grow along the rock. 

Hope it makes it through the winter cause it’s not getting moved from that spot for years.Potted this little Dyckia ‘Naked Lady’ F2 into a rather large container this morning. It’s called ‘Naked Lady’ because it doesn’t have any spines along it’s leaf edges, which is uncommon for dyckia.

Some tools I use quite often when getting plants ready for show; sale; or as for these four, an auction!

They’re for a “rare plant auction” and I don’t really have any rare plants, or at least can’t share the “rare” ones I have because they’re still young. 

So we have xQuesmea ‘Lyman’ in the first two pictures. Quesnelia ‘Farro’ in the second, xAndrolaechmea ‘Paradise’ in the third, and Orthophytum foliosum.Some tools I use quite often when getting plants ready for show; sale; or as for these four, an auction!

Detail of Neoregelia ‘DeRolf’. 
Sunburn and split leaves from falling acorns beat this plant to hell last fall, and it’s finally growing out of it this summer. 
This plant was on my wish list for so long before i found a pup for sale at a reasonable price!
It has great variegation that blushes pink in high light, and full grown plants are absolutely stunning, especially in flower.  View Larger
