Product Description

Copiapoa cinerea X griseoviolacea

Copiapoa cinerea X griseoviolacea is a hybrid cactus resulting from a cross between Copiapoa cinerea and Copiapoa griseoviolacea. This hybrid exhibits characteristics inherited from both parent species. It typically forms solitary or clumping globular or cylindrical bodies with ribs covered in a dense layer of white or grayish wool and spines. The spines can vary in color from light brown to gray and are usually short and stout. During the flowering season, which typically occurs in spring or early summer, it produces vibrant yellow or orange flowers atop the plant.

Cultivation Tips for Copiapoa cinerea X griseoviolacea: Here are some cultivation tips for Copiapoa cinerea X griseoviolacea:

  1. Soil: Use a well-draining cactus mix with added perlite or coarse sand to ensure proper drainage. Copiapoa species prefer sandy, mineral-rich soils.

  2. Sunlight: Place the plant in a location where it can receive plenty of direct sunlight. Copiapoas thrive in full sun conditions, but protect them from intense midday sun in hot climates.

  3. Watering: Water Copiapoa cinerea X griseoviolacea sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to rot, so it's essential to err on the side of underwatering, especially during the dormant winter months.

  4. Temperature: These cacti prefer warm temperatures and can tolerate high temperatures during the day, but they require cooler temperatures at night to thrive. Protect them from frost and extreme cold, as they are not frost-hardy.

  5. Potting: Use shallow pots with drainage holes to plant Copiapoa cinerea X griseoviolacea. Repotting should only be done when necessary, as these cacti prefer to be root-bound.

  6. Fertilization: Fertilize sparingly with a balanced cactus fertilizer diluted to half-strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant period.

  7. Pest and Disease Control: Monitor the plant regularly for signs of pests such as scale insects or mealybugs. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Ensure good air circulation around the plant to prevent fungal diseases.

By following these cultivation tips, you can successfully grow and care for Copiapoa cinerea X griseoviolacea, enjoying its unique characteristics and vibrant flowers in your collection of cacti and succulents.
