I'm mostly into cacti, aloes, and other heat tolerant succulents, and more recently hoyas and some tropicals. Phoenix, AZ. USDA zone 9b, heat zone 11.

The entire flower stalk on my Dyckia, viewed from the top. I thought once the flowers started opening that it would be an entire stalk of blooms, but it seems like it's only opening a pair at a time on each branch. One pair wilts and the next opens. Still pretty, bc the whole thing is white and felty anyways, but not the flower display I was hoping it might be.

Kind of how it goes with cactus and succulents. The sure take there time to open. I know you’re going to post more of this pretty thing, I’ll be watching for it. #lovespringtime

@docthrill good point abt succs taking their time to bloom! I'll post more pics if it blooms in more profusion, or if I figure out how to take a decent photo of the whole thing. 😆

My dyckia sent up this huuuuuge stalk a while ago, and I didn't really know what to expect, but now all is revealed with the opening of the first couple flowers. 🤩

This huge, vicious Dyckia is starting to get some #wintercolor #wintercolour . Look, but don't touch! 😱 It's got a couple large pups growing among the leaves, but I haven't worked up the desire to reach in and excise them. 😬 #foliagefriday
