Descrizione del prodotto

The Copiapoa cinerea X atacamensis hybrid is a cross between two species of the Copiapoa genus.

Description

  1. Growth Habit: The hybrid usually shows a columnar growth pattern, potentially forming clusters or mounds over time, depending on the dominant traits inherited.
  2. Stem: The stem color may vary, often exhibiting a bluish-grey hue reminiscent of C. cinerea, but this can be influenced by the traits of C. longistaminea.
  3. Spines: The spination is typically dense, combining the thick, grey spines of C. cinerea with the potentially longer and more pronounced spines from C. longistaminea.
  4. Flowers: The flowers may be larger and more conspicuous, drawing from the longistaminea's traits, and can vary in color, often yellow or whitish.
  5. Size and Growth Rate: Like most Copiapoa species, this hybrid is likely to be slow-growing. The size at maturity can vary depending on which parental traits are more dominant.

Cultivation Tips

  1. Lighting: Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. While they can tolerate direct sun, protection during the hottest part of the day is beneficial, especially in very warm climates.
  2. Watering: Water moderately in the growing season and sparingly in winter. Allow the soil to dry completely between waterings. Overwatering can cause root rot.
  3. Soil: A well-draining cactus mix is essential. A mix of potting soil, coarse sand, and perlite or pumice is ideal.
  4. Temperature: These cacti prefer warm conditions and need protection from frost. They can tolerate a range of temperatures but thrive best between 10°C to 30°C (50°F to 86°F).
  5. Fertilizer: Use a low-nitrogen cactus fertilizer during the growing season. Avoid over-fertilizing.
  6. Repotting: Repot every few years to refresh the soil. Be cautious of the spines when handling.
  7. Pests and Diseases: Look out for common pests like mealybugs. Ensure good ventilation and proper watering to prevent fungal diseases.

Hybrids like the Copiapoa cinerea X atacamensis are particularly valued for their unique appearance and the blending of desirable traits from two different species. With proper care, they can be a spectacular addition to any cactus collection, offering a blend of beauty and resilience.
