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.
