One of my most favorite Dyckia, but I just realized that to enhance its golden (or yellow or moon or sun !!!) glowing you should give the plant at least half a day sun.

Very attractive pale-green to yellow-green leaved terrestrial bromeliad with sparse but sharp spines, thick, stiff leaves with bright white undersides. Leaves have pale bases that are yellowy relative to the rest of the leaf.
