Copiapoa humilis

Copiapoa humilis is one of the most admired species of cacti

Description: Very small low growing cactus sometime solitary but usually clumping at the base. It's a highly variable taxon with several more or less similar forms that could be described as local varieties. Taylor suggests that this is a very complex species or species aggregate, perhaps representing geographical varieties or, in some cases, critical species, listed here in sequence from north to south: C. tocopillana, C. tenuissima, C. variispinata, C. paposoensis, C. taltalensis, C. longispina and possibly C. chaniaralensis and C. esmeraldana.
In considering C. humilis species, we need to bear in mind the remarkable differences between young plants, with short, thin spination and the darker coloration of the body compared to the more robust adults with longer and sturdy, flexible spines.
Stem:
Subglobular, depressed, pale olive -green to tan producing copious wool in the apex. . 2.5-9 cm. broad by 2-6 cm. high.
Flower: 2-4 cm. long, corolla sulphur yellow, scented. In cultivation in the C. humilis are able to flower from immature stems at an early age (c. 2 years from germination) and set viable seed.
Fruit: Round, naked, bright red, up to 8 mm long.
