Copiapoa Humilis

Copiapoa Humilis is commonly known as ‘Copiapoa’. It is a cactus from the small Copiapoa genus that is native to Northern Chile and belongs to the Cactaceae family. This plant is a contentious geographical form of the highly variable Copiapoa humilis, with grass-green, bluish-green, grey-green, or occasionally red-brown stems. It can grow up to the height of 12 cm and has a Hemispherical shape.

Growth Rate

Copiapoa humilis has a slow growth rate.

Flowering

This plant flowers consistently from a young age, producing vibrant yellow, campanulate flowers about 1/2 inch wide. They bloom between spring and fall.

Watering and Feeding

During the summer, water the Copiapoa cactus in the morning before the temperatures rise. Water infrequently during the winter, maybe once a month. It is safe to stop watering completely. These plants do not need to be fertilized as cactus soil contains sufficient nutrients.

Soil

Copiapoa humilis are native to rocky, nutrient-depleted climates with few organic nutrients. They prefer a soil mix that is gritty and well-draining.

Hardiness

These cacti have a frost tolerance of 0° C (32° F) and belong to the hardiness zone of 10.

Light

Copiapoa cacti prefer full sun exposure, preferably at least five hours per day. They can tolerate some shade, but the more sun they get, the better.

Propagation

This interesting plant can be propagated easily by separating pups and offsets from the mother plant. Replant every three to four years. Early spring is the best time to repot because the plants are just coming out of dormancy.

Copiapoa Humilis would rather be bound to a pot. This plant requires little care and grows easily.
