Origin and Habitat: From coastal Chile (Region III Atacama) South of Freirina in the Huasco valley (Atacama Desert)
Habitat: Eriosyce napina grows in one of the most arid areas in the world, among rocky crags and sand dunes in sandy-clayey soil in a vegetable formation called “Costal desert of Huasco,” a typical “desertic mattoral” that is just spectacular and impressive when it displays the phenomenon of the “flowering desert”.
