Copiapoa Hypogaea Bloom

My Copiapoa hypogaea is blooming!

I go out on my lanai every evening to inspect and admire my potted plants. My stapelia has a flower bud on it that just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I’ve been watching it for a couple of weeks now. I’ll be so excited to see it bloom. When I go onto the lanai, it’s the first thing I look at. I was so focused on it last night, I almost didn’t see the copiapoa.

I smelled it on the off chance that it might have a scent. I think I might have detected a slight fragrance, but it could have been my imagination. The flower is a delicate beauty though. There are other buds, so I’ll have to make sure to enjoy all the flowers it produces. Cactus flowers are short-lived.

    Such loveliness, right there on your lanai! Isn’t that one of the perks of living on the islands? My grandma used to have loads of plants on her lanai. The fragrances were beautiful, too.
