Copiapoa Hypogaea is a cactus plant. Solitary or clumping slowly, mainly offset at the base of the plant, taproot, the body is Grey/green/brown. Depressed-globose with black small spines and forming white wool in the center. Copiapoa Hypogaea requires filtered sunlight to full sun per day.

Also as known as Chileorebutia Hypogaea, Neochilenia Hypogaea, Pilocopiapoa Hypogaea


Watch your Copiapoa for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

Chipeorebutia Hypogaea requires more sunlight if it looks like growing out of shape. Burning is a common fact when having new plants. Best to gradually give them more sunlight as the weeks go by. Instead of placing it in straight sunlight.

Allow them to sit for a week before giving them a good drink. Depending on the season. Make sure they dry out completely before watering again. Don’t forget to give them a spray with soapy water to keep the bugs off them. And provide very good ventilation.
