Reginaldo - I don't know much about Dyckias, but I can still appreciate a nice clean well grown plant, congratulations, and thanks for sharing with us.

What colour are the flowers on this one and do you have a picture of it with the flowers open?

All the best, Nev.

Reginaldo, that's a great picture. The black background really works well.

I've never seen a dyckia with so many flower spikes. Did you do anything that might have caused that many flower spikes to emerge?

378, I think there were two main factors:
- This species (not yet described) usually bloom well
- And this plant was replanted recently and received a new substrate. I use a commercial substrate sale here composed of pine bark, coir, vermiculite, rice husk.

Reginaldo - Thanks for the response to my request to show the colour of the flowers, they're quite eye-catching.

Also, it's nice of you to share your growing tips with our members and get into the real objective of this forum, and that is "sharing information with other members". By doing this we all benefit.

All the best, Nev.
