C. dealbata:

C. cinerea... the flower is having a difficult time escaping the spines.
This is the first time it has flowered since it was just a tiny green dot in a seedling punnet in the 70's

Love the cinerea. Short black spines plus an olive drab colouring just says "I am one badass cactus" to me. Laughing

Really nice CP. I love all cacti from Chili.

I especially love Copiapoa's when they're this mature.
I with Lachy though, the cinerea is awesome.

Nice CP! I love them all.

Over the last year I have been getting pretty interested in the genus Copiapoa I only have a few though.

What size is that C. cinerea? Looks fairly large?

ooohh great, very nice cinerea!
congratulation for that plant. here in Chile I have seen them in flower in habitat, but in "cultivation" the older cinerea that I have seen had just 10 years old.

my respects,

Juan Acosta
