Yet more Dyckia in the ground...

Following up on my previous thread here, I added the potted newbie into the mix. Finally got some new shots of the group today:

Hechtia tillandsioides, what a looker!

This Deuterocohnia longipetala sure took on a reddish hue, but it continues to grow. Also grew two new branches to the flower stalk, which was unfortunately clipped by the nursery (see the top two photos)

All told, they seem fairly happy underneath that palm tree, so I'll keep throwing them in the ground as I find more. They are quite easy to take care of and so far have had no problems with either heat or cold or excessive rain this past winter. I need more plants like this, that I can neglect without consequence when I am too busy pampering the agave and bamboo. :U

I love the variety you have there. They look like they've adjusted well and been growing.

Looking fabulous! I admire your courage placing them in the ground. I have a few, but they will have to remain in their pots for now. Jkw

Looks great.
I can only speak for my own...but they are slow to fill in.
Whats the bottom one? That needs a little better highlighting to show it off. Maybe rocks or gravel. I like that one especially. I can see that in a pile of lava rock or granite boulders.
