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 library and online research as well as observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, in particular if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Dyckia 'Cactus Ranch Red'.
