Copiapoa calderana 'lembckei'

Copiapoa lembkei is a common name for a form of C. calderana and one of the more common in cultivation Copiapoas. It is relatively slow growing plant, reliably blooming once large enough. In my greenhouse it blooms repeatedly all the summer. This species forms a felty crown, with new spines and buds emerging from it.
This is a generally easy plant, requiring strong lite for more robust appearance. It responds well to common cactus culture. 'Calderana' name refers to a mining town Caldera of Chile.
