Copiapoa hypogaea Family: Cactaceae. A very nice browish to purplish cactus with short spines. This species is best appreciated close up where you can see the texturing of the plant. This texture is mostly visual but gives an almost skin like appearance to it. In fact, these plants come from seeds of a Lizard Skin type. They will form clumps in time (some available plants are clumping already). Requires general cactus care. Sensitive to excessive sun. Protect from frost.
Please note: I think this may be a pot made up of two or more plants. I probably put a few small pups in one pot to root then never repotted them. Regardless, what you see is what get. The plant will be sent bare root but will include every plant/pup seen in the picture. On a related note, a couple heads have old splits that have healed over. You can see this in the pics.
You will receive the plant shown in the images. Plants shown growing in a 4" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
