Naked Lady Dyckia Plant - 4" Pot - Spineless - Succulent Bromeliad
Gift wrapping Options available
Dyckia 'Naked Lady' - A very attractive terrestrial bromeliad that grows in clusters with individual plants reaching 1 foot tall and 1 to 2 feet wide with strap-shaped lime-green plastic-looking leaves that are gracefully recurved and terminate in a sharp tip. Unlike all other Dyckia we know of, this plant has no spines along the margins and it is this attribute gives this plant its clever name. In spring plants grown with sufficient light produce tall wands of few-branching panicles bearing bright yellow-orange flowers. While some list this as a friendly plant, anyone who has worked around it knows the tips of the leaves are both rigid and sharp so careful placement in the garden or potted collection is necessary. Without its marginal spines this plant is fodder for rabbits and if you have them, an elevated pot is recommended.
They prefer a sunny location and should be watered only when dry.
They readily form offsets (pups) and will grow into a neat colony with age. They are excellent for house plants, open terrariums or fairy gardens.
