I recently got this unknown species?  Seller apparently bought at local sale in San Diego (maybe from Andy??)  I asked about it and she said "the seed was wild collected and tags were lost. If it's ever addressed I'll post it."
any ideas on what it is, or locality?  thanks much, Mike

Kind of look like 'La Rioja'.  There are a few different plants going around with that name.  It is vague as I assume the La Rioja river covers a bit of terrain.  But it probably refers to a single location versus the river.  This looks like what I have gotten from a couple of sources (including from Tropiflora...through a couple of hands).  The difference between those are slight color variation.  The other 'type' apparently was released by the Huntington/ISI a number of years ago.  It is going around untagged (the one recently mentioned on FB, Wes) and is a very different plant.  It has intermittent spines and much shorter/more squat leaves.

Are you referring to Dyckia 1750 (or 1850?) I got mine from Dorothy eons ago. The plant I pictured on FB is not THAT plant. The 1750 was  big white and thorny -REAL eyepopper.  The one I pictured is some 7.00 dollar  unmarked Dyckia off of El Cajon Blvd. Someone told me the $7 plant was actually some super valuable Dyckia that was seldom seen. *shrug*
Thinking about selling all my Dyckia.

Yeah, the El Cajon Blvd one is the plant I am referring to.  The odd spination that sometimes isn't even there.  Someone up north was telling me that is the 'La Rioja' that the ISI sent out.  I'm not familiar with the 1750/1850 one you are talking about.  Pictures?

Hi

Well the one postedfirst above is flowering, does that aid at all?  Frankly, I have no sense how different Dyckia flwoers and inflorescences are.  thanks, Mike

Hi

I stumbled upon these at different times at the Huntington, and just realized they are teh same ISI 1750 plant from La rioja.  From the tag, it seems it came out as velascana, and was later changed to floribunda.  Certainly doesn't match the velascana I found on FCBS or Andy's posted elsewhere.  The lax orangish flowers seem right for the floribunda ID>  While the large label outside says velascana, the metal tag says floribunda.  Mike
