Astrophytum asterias 'Super Kabuto' Family: Cactaceae. The Japenese Sea Urchin cactus. One of the most attractive forms of Astrophytum. This cultivar is like the normal Sea Urchin cactus but with a much patterning of white flecks. This patterning is different on every plant. Makes beautiful yellow or red flowers in summer. Fairly easy to care for, except it can be fussy about overwatering especially in winter. Surprisingly, it is less rot prone than the normal form or the species. Can take light frost when more mature but best to protect when possible.
You will receive the plant shown in the images. It is shown growing in a 4" pot
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
