Thank you very much Alejandro. I would have to say Copiapoa Columna Alba, although there are many species I love.

So do you grow them in these pots or rotate them for effect?

In addition to Mike's questions, I've read Copiapoa's in habitat get their moisture from fog and rarely experience rain. Do you mist or water them?

Beautiful photos. I have a lot of Eriosyce and Copiapoa from a friend in Chile. I water them as my other cacti but also spray (as with my other cacti.) Am I missing something with your pics - where are the names?
