Does the price indicate the true rarity of this epiphytic Cactus? The easily grown "Dogtail Cactus" perfect for baskets as the ornately ribbed fat stem sections will create an impressive jumbled cascading curtain in time. But if given the chance to climb, however, this rain forest tropical becomes an agressive scandent...
"Propeller Vine" Propeller-shaped pairs of attractive gray- green leaves on soft swollen pendant (or climbing if it can find something to twine around) stems make this a great basket subject--extremely popular twining about on open wire topiary frams. Bizarre little clusters of urn shaped blimp blossoms sometimes appea...
Similar habit to D. albida; but the fat glaucous leaves, always in pairs, are more diamond shaped. A collection from Nanning, China introduced by Plant It Herbs initially.
Little rounded fleshy leaves of bright (nearly glossy) basil green on slim meandering stems, making this a natural on mossed topicary; pouchy cream blooms in tiny clusters. Smaller statured than the other species offered here (not very "maximum" in actual stature!)... and very in demand for succulent wreaths as only fo...

Available again for 2008. Succulent fat green button leaves, each margined in rich ivory, are closely paired on the surface stems which shallowly root on any epiphytic mix or cork bark or treefern plaque. We have seen these growing in hanging baskets also with great effect. One of our favorite plants. These "Owl Eyes" ...
Slim stems stiftly arch out under the weight of precisely ranked small fleshy trapizoidal leaves. Very cute; much admired by those who collect the smaller statured Hoyas. As with all Dischidias, this needs a perfectly drained epiphytic mix in order to thrive, soon forming an arching carpet of deep green cookie cutter f...
Attractive vine with opposite succulent leaves; odd blimp blossoms like tiny urns crouded into tight clusters. This is a great performer on wire topiary with its cute fleshy propeller leaf pairs like fleshy ears on the soft succulent (and very pliable) stems. Our customers often use this accomodating groundcover at the...

Rather curious small caudiform in the fig family. This Dorstenia has the typical shield flower and slightly fuzzy leaves. Great for a bonsai pot.
Very curious plant from Socotra. This plant is bumpy caudexed with bubble textured leaves. It has everything for the collection of odd and usual and caudiciform plants. We have a limited number of these available now. Best to inquire. Everyone who sees this plant in our collection wants to take it away.

Brand New in 2010. This plant has the darkest and most cranberry colored overtones of any of the Dyckias we offer. Like the other Dyckias below, makes a great indoor or windowsill subject. Take advantage of the low price for this spectcular hedgehog with very downturned heavily armed waxy purple foliage.
Thick-leaved hybrid smaller than D. platyphylla parent; first forms an elegant very succulent rosette, then offsets to form an interlaced (spiny leaved monster) mound. Our price reflects our unwillingness to tackle the daunting creature! But remains an excellent impressive Agave mimic in any succulent collection, a gre...
Very ornate impressively armed rosettes of slim skeletal leathery leaves closely packed forming a hemisphere in time (separating offsets can lead to permanent scars); pink flowers scattered on elegant wands. Highly recommended for any serious sado-masochistic plant collection. Petite pink flowers lining the tall wands ...

Dark purple-black fleshy leaves tightly packed into compact rosettes, the deepest tones achieved with full sun. Handsome--who says pudgy can't be pretty.
Originally received from Hummel, this is an heirloom hybrid of Echevaria setosa with E. pulvinata, with resultingly stout stubby stems thickly covered with rosettes of fat glossy leaves thickly pelted with white hairs. But, looks friendly!
