Rebutia heliosa

$ 22.00 Sold out
Size: 2"

Embodying the warmth and brilliance of the sun itself, Rebutia heliosa is a captivating succulent hailing from the high altitudes of Bolivia. This compact beauty dazzles with its tight clusters of spiny, spherical bodies, each measuring up to 2 inches in diameter. The surface of these globular forms is adorned with a vibrant palette of greens and yellows, creating a lively contrast against the sharp, white spines that emerge in all directions.

Rebutia heliosa thrives in conditions that mimic its native mountainous habitat, preferring bright light and well-draining soil to flourish. Despite its fierce appearance, this succulent remains relatively small, making it an ideal candidate for windowsill gardens, rockeries, or as a standout specimen in a mixed succulent container. As it matures, Rebutia heliosa will produce offsets, gradually forming a captivating cluster of sun-like spheres.

The true spectacle begins in late spring to early summer when Rebutia heliosa bursts into bloom. It produces stunning, vivid orange to red flowers that seem to glow against its spiny backdrop. These blooms are not only a feast for the eyes but also attract a variety of pollinators, adding another layer of dynamism to your garden or home. Due to its modest size and striking appearance, Rebutia heliosa is a must-have for enthusiasts looking to add a touch of solar flair to their collection.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
