Could someone ID this one please? I got it in a trade in '10 and lost the ID. Looks like it's going to have a pretty decent seed crop. Is it self-fertile? Will seeds be viable?
Couldn't find a 'Bromeliads' forum. Not enough interest?

It is very hard to ID a random Dyckia. There are lots of hybrids out there. Your plant may be self fertile. It should not be terribly hard to grow plants from seed. It does take them a little while to get up to speed, just be consistent about the care. Provide strong light, good drainage, regular water.

This place:

has a bromeliad gallery with quite a few Dickias in it, you will have to browse each entry, but it may be in there or you could post it in the discussion forum to see if someone there can ID it.
