Copiapoa Flowers

This is a Copiapoa tenuissima specimen. A bit of its history can be found in the Copiapoa Specimens Page. Anyway, this plant bloomed again for a short while in October 2000. The previous time it bloomed was when it was acquired.

The growth of the plant is a bit messed up. There are a lot of offsets due to the high nitrogen content in the aquaculture nutrient. The new growth came after there was a loss of roots, so the plant ended up looking weird.

The flower didn't really open. Perhaps it was because the side of the house where it was situated did not have a bright enough sunshine. Even the colour of the plant has become lighter. It was a very dark brown when first acquired.
