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.

To prevent plants from freezing while in transit, orders placed for areas with extreme severe freezing temperatures will be held for shipment until it is safe to ship.

At this time, we are not shipping international, we are in a process to get some certification until then, we won’t be able to ship to any country outside of the US

All international sales are shipped bare root. We don't supply Phyto certificates, it is too expensive and complicated for small orders. In some cases, the customs authorities at the destination country might decide to open the packages  and will be up tho them to determine if the product can enter the country. for that reason, we can't guarantee the delivery and will be up to their customers own risk to decide to purchase our plants

Thanks
