Dyckia “Black Gold” in bloom. It has yellow blooms! I thought they would be orange.
This terrestrial bromeliad is a bitch to repot, with all those marginal spines all up and down those sawblade-like leaves going off in all directions. Good luck. Although to be fair, not as bad as a Puya.
You can see in the photo that these have gone a bit green in winter, but they will get much darker in the summer sun, or if we had had a sunny winter they would have stayed a darker color. But the truth is that these plants will do just fine in shade if you don’t mind them being green.
