Copiapoa tenebrosa (B).JPG Copiapoa tenebrosa408 viewsCopiapoa tenebrosa grown from habitat seed, from high up in the hills

however, very few plants grow totally spineless, this one didn't,
although the spines are still very needle thin like.

lophophora diffusa - white fowers - yellow pollen 01.JPG Lophophora Diffusa - White Flowers258 viewsThis is a white as they get. Some sources state that the flowers can be yellowish or cream.
