Copiapoa krainziana

A nice young specimen of Copiapoa krainziana, a cactus from the northern coastal regions of Chile where it receives most of its moisture from the coastal fog, known locally as the camanchaca. This is a hot and dry region and therefore, in cultivation, they prefer bright, warm situations and are sensitive to cold. These plants are on their own roots though they are sometimes grafted.
Enjoy your plants
