Neoporteria multicolor

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Neoporteria multicolor

Endemic to Chile, these plants live among small valleys and traverse to the sea. The species is frequent but not abundant in sclerophyllous forest and thorny scrub on rocky soils, the populations are severely fragmented, and illegal collection is causing a continual decline in the number of mature individuals. Furthermore, land conversion for agriculture and urbanization is degrading the habitat surrounding the species.

It is a summer-growing species. Water regularly in summer, but do not over-water (rot prone). It needs good drainage and very a porous potting soil Keep dry in winter. Feed with a high potassium fertilizer in summer.
Need Full sun to bright shade. Frost Tolerance: -4°C.

Amazing Planet Desert

I have not ordered plants on line too frequently. This was an utterly amazing experience! I cannot imagine having to ship plants. All the plants arrived precisely as they looked on the website and the amazing packing job was just crazy! To ship live plants in soil is such a challenge. There was very little soil loss in the packaging. I am so excited to order again in the future. Oh and the bonus cactus I was sent was very large and had buds on it! Nuts!

Amazing cacti

This little guy was completely healthy and has so much personality. Yeah I know I’m a goofus for saying a plant has personality but you should see it in its little sombrero!

Even Better in Person

This is one of my favorites, the colors are amazing, and looks completely different in different lighting. I’m glad that I ordered it.
