Dyckia hybrid 'Burgundy Ice' + Rustic Glazed Vessel

from 55.00

Dyckia is a genus of bromeliad found within the Pitcairnioideae subfamily of bromeliads. There are 120 different species of Dyckia with many more cultivars. Most Dyckias are native to Brazil. They prefer sunny and rocky terrain. Dyckias are often confused with succulents because they look and play the part. They have stiff leathery leaves and are very drought tolerant, but unlike true succulents they cannot store their own water internally. They simply respond to periods of stress, such as dry weather conditions, by going dormant.This species produces pups or offsets which is common among bromeliads. When grown in a pot, Dyckias will eventually need to be separated and replanted. Remove pups when they half the size of the mother plant.
