Astrophytum Hybrid


Astrophytum superkabuto originated with a mutation that occurred in just one field-collected individual of A. asterias found in 1981 by the Japanese Mr. Masaomi Takeo who then sold to Tony Sato at a high price in Japan.
Cross-pollinating this original plant with various other Astrophytum species has resulted in a myriad of intraspecific hybrids, each containing the genes of a variety of species and clones. There are way too many insanely beautiful forms of 'Super Kabuto' to mention, each offering its own flavor of pattern and shape. The plant pictured is on its own root. Roots are just starting grow out I would place it in a high pumice mix and water sparingly until the plant develops a better root structure.

Plants are individually boxed and ship bare root, pot/soil not included
