Leaves with petiole, 4-7(-9) cm long, sheathing the young shoots, petiolar margins membranaceous, translucid, extending through 2/3 of the petiole, glabrous or minutely pubescent, with lustrose appearance; leaf blades (13-)15-27(-45) cm long, 12-21(-26) cm wide, dimorphic through the sympodial axis, monopodial leaves ovate or widely ovate, cordate and slightly auriculate at the base, with the lobes almost symmetrical; sympodial leaves elliptic-ovate, cordate to deeply auriculate at the base, with the lobes asymmetrical, the bigger lobe half or completely overlapping the petiole; obtuse to shortly acuminate at the apex, ciliate at the margin, minutely pubescent in both surfaces; pinnately nerved, veins 4-8, inconspicuously punctate pellucid; membranaceous, with a matt appearance.

(The smaller drawing shows a single areole with spines.) Cacti vary in shape from the many pulvinate (cushion-forming) species of Copiapoa in the Atacama Desert (the drawing shows the cushion growth-form, a longitudinal section of a flower, and the taproot so typical of cacti) to monopodial arborescent forms such as the spectacular candelabro (Browningia candelabris) of the Andean slopes of the Tarapac Desert (Atacama), growing up to 16 ft (5 m) tall.
Competition for solar irradiation has been characterized as an overtopping game in which rapid vertical growth (monopodial extension) is followed by horizontal crown spreading (sympodial branching) (Givinish 1984, Kuuluvainen 1992).
