Barbacenia sp
Plant from altitute fields, growing in the rock crevices. Vellozia is a South American genus in the Velloziaceae family mostly found in Brazil. Most of the species look like Sisyrinchium (grasslike evergreen erect foliage, fibrous or fleshy roots, star shaped flowers). Their native soils are ancient, acid and poor. Some of the species grow in dryish areas, others in moist ground.It is easy to poison them by providing a too rich soil. They hate having their roots disturbed. Grows up as little shrubs.

Hélcio, embora seja uma flor, penso que você capturou um ótimo momento aqui. Numa das pétalas do alto, tem-se a impressão de que a flor está segurando para não cair. Gostei. Mais uma vez, excelente nota.
