Dyckia 'Cactus Ranch Red' (Red-leafed Dyckia) - This terrestrial bromeliad has rosettes of spine-margined reddish leaves and pale orange flowers that rise on branched inflorescences to 2 to 3 feet. This plant has been propagated by division and is a uniform deep blackish-red. Plant in bright light (full sun best along coast) to enhance the dark color. Give good drainage and occasional to very little irrigation. This plant was purchased from Dave Bernstein of California Nursery Specialties at his Cactus Ranch location in Reseda. It was received as a Dyckia hebdingii hybrid but while Dyckia hebdingii is a valid species, it is considered quite rare and few hybrids are known. Until we can learn more about this plant's origins we are calling it Dyckia 'Cactus Ranch Red'.  The information on this page is based on our research that has been conducted on this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in the nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Dyckia 'Cactus Ranch Red'.
