Blanco Encalada, Atacama desert, Chile, Feebruary 2014. They really are stunning plants and among the most sought after of the Copiapoas. Unfortunately they are incredibly slow at growing (also grafted seedlings are still extremely slow). The plant produces only a few spines each year and the seedling on their own roots are slowest than the aztekiums!
