I am not a professional nor an expert in Cactacea or Copiapoa taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. Photos are for reference only. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

    A-1 Copiapoa dealbata (Sometime call Copiapoa cinerea ssp. dealbata. Copiapoa dealbata occurs along the Chilean coast, both north and south of Carrizal Bajo, and at a point ca halfway towards Totoral, Atacama, Chile. It has a restricted range (extent of occurrence 500 km2), however the species is abundant, there is no continuing decline of the populations. Altitude: (0ľ)20-500(-700) metres above sea level. This plant is growing in a 4 1/2 inch pot.) $40.00 Sold

      C - Copiapoa coqimbana fa. Mine Pablo (The old mother plant came to with this name me many years ago. It may be Copiapoa solaris? South of the Copiapoa genus range, from the hills around the coastal towns of Coquimbo and La Serena in the province of Coquimbo, Chile. This plant is growing in a 6 inch pot.) $40.00 Sold

      D - Copiapoa coqimbana fa. Mine Pablo (The old mother plant came to me with this name many years ago. It may be Copiapoa solaris?

     T - Copiapoa humilis ssp. tenuissima crest (These crest are on their own roots. Native to the coastal deserts on the steep mountain base among fragmented stones. The long tuberous root of this copiapoa is buried deeply in these soils which are very poor in organic matter. In the area where this plants grows there is very little rain but frequent coastal fog, which provides a significant part of their water needs. The common presence in habitat of plants with juvenile spination forms on old taproots is due to the frequent grazing damage inflicted by donkeys and Guanacos. Northern Chile, Antofagasta. Growing in 4 1/2 inch pots.) $50.00

     S-1 - Copiapoa humilis ssp. tenuissima monstrose (You ask what makes these monstrose? As the new spineless offsets grow in with all their wooly growns they will also grow tiny white wooly balls in their growns. As they age they will make mounds of little whites wooly balls. They are growing on there own roots in 3 inch pots.) $18.00

     P-1 - Copiapoa lembckei (My old mother plant came with this name a long time ago. This may be Copiapoa calderana F. Ritter 1959. Coastal deserts of northern Chile, Atacama, Antofagasta, Caldera. In the area where this plants grows there is very little rain but frequent coastal fog, which provides a significant part of their water needs. These plants are growing in 3 1/2 inch pots.) $28.00 Sold

  G - Copiapoa montana (This taxon has lots of synonyms (like many other cacti) with several controversial varieties and subspecies and comprises a multitude of different forms, but where each form is linked to others by populations of plants with intermediate characteristics. It is a geophytic cactus arising from a large tuberose root. It is at first solitary but can branch from the base to form large clump up to 50 cm tall. Habitat: N-Chile-Antofagasta, Atacama, Coquimbo. This plant is growing in a 6 inch pot.) $50.00

F - Copiapoa marginata (The old mothe plant came to me with the name Copiapoa marginata ssp. bridesii many years ago. Copiapoa marginata is endemic to Chile, where it occurs in the coastal hills in southwest Caldera and Morro Copiapˇ and in the northern part of National Park Pan de Az˙car, north Cha˝aral. This species has an extent of occurrence of 5,000 km2, there are probably more than 10 locations. The species is widespread but not abundant and the groups of individuals are scattered. The highest density is observed in Morro Copiapˇ. Copiapoa marginata is the most northerly species of this genus.
