Copiapoa humilis paposoensis

Origin and Habitat: Chile,
Description: Copiapoa paposoensis is one of the controversial geographical forms of the very variable Copiapoa humilis with grass-green, bluish-green, or somewhat grey-green, or rarely red-brown stems. Nowadays all them are thought to belong to a unique polymorphic species. Such variations has led to establishment of several unnecessary names for this species.
Habit: Solitary, rarely offsetting of its own.
Stem: Hemispherical, 6-12 cm in diameter, grass-green, bluish-green, or somewhat grey-green, or rarely red-brown. The stem is also harder than that of the Copiapoa humilis. The crown is somewhat depressed, with white woolly felt.
Root: Massive, thickened rootstock going well down into the ground, with a long narrow neck.
Ribs: 9-16.
Flowers: Yellow, campanulate, scented, about 30 mm long, growing from the center of the white wool at the apex.

Cultivation and Propagation: Slow growing, it need full sun but should be protected from excessive heat and sun in summer. Requires light watering and good drainage. Keep warm and dry in winter to avoid rot. It needs mild heat in winter; avoid any frost.
