Well done, looking great.
I flower most of my Copiapoas every year and have several blooming now, but the cinerea that I’ve had for well over 40 years has never flowered. It remains a solitary ball the size of a grapefruit.
I used to live close to the Preston-Mafham collection and have several plants under their collection numbers, but not this one.

Beautiful plant Diane, you must keep it in full sun to get that patina ?

I do! Top shelf, and it doesn’t get watered very often.
