Descrizione del prodotto

Copiapoa atacamensis is a captivating species of cactus native to the arid regions of northern Chile, particularly the Atacama Desert. It is known for its remarkable resilience in extreme desert conditions and its distinctive appearance. Here's a brief description and some cultivation tips for Copiapoa atacamensis:

Copiapoa atacamensis is a small to medium-sized cactus with a globular or cylindrical shape. It typically grows to a height of 4 to 12 inches (10 to 30 cm) and has a diameter of 3 to 6 inches (8 to 15 cm). This cactus species often features a bluish-green or grayish-green coloration with pronounced ribs adorned by distinctive, white, woolly areoles. Spines can vary in length and color, ranging from golden yellow to brown, and they are usually found at the apex of the plant. During the blooming season, it produces small, colorful flowers in shades of yellow or red, adding to its overall charm.


Light: Copiapoa atacamensis thrives in full sunlight. Provide it with at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day, such as placing it on a south-facing windowsill or outdoors in a sunny spot.
Temperature: These cacti prefer a warm to hot climate. Keep them in a temperature range of 70-90°F (21-32°C) during the growing season and protect them from frost during the winter months.
Soil: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent mix that allows excess water to escape quickly. You can also add extra perlite or sand to enhance drainage.
Watering: Copiapoa atacamensis Agave lophantha cv. "quadricolor" (Vaso quadro 9x9x10 cm is drought-tolerant and should be allowed to dry out between waterings. Water sparingly, typically every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer), and reduce watering in the dormant season (fall and winter).
Potting: Repot your cactus only when it outgrows its current container, typically every 2-3 years. Choose a pot that is slightly larger and has drainage holes.
Fertilization: Apply a diluted, balanced, liquid cactus fertilizer during the growing season, usually once every 4-6 weeks.
Pests and Diseases: Keep an eye out for common cactus pests like mealybugs and scale insects. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or rubbing alcohol.
Propagation: Copiapoa atacamensis can be propagated from seeds, offsets (pups), or grafting onto a compatible rootstock. Seeds may take several years to mature into mature plants.
Remember that Copiapoa atacamensis, like many cacti, is adapted to survive in harsh desert conditions, so it thrives when you mimic those conditions in your cultivation. Providing excellent drainage, plenty of sunlight, and minimal water are key to its health and longevity.
