Astrophytum asterias x capricorne Family: Cactaceae. A very interesting hybrid between two attractive Astrophytum species. The plants show the strong ribbing of A. capricorne, as well as the spines in some plants. It also has the sea urchin shape of A. asterias. Because these are first generation hybrids (i.e. not a cross that has stabilized after many generations) every plant is unique. They share common traits but each one is different from the other. Some look more like A. asterias, others like A. capricorne, but most are in the middle. Please keep this in mind when you order one. Flowers bright yellow with red centers and produced throughout the summer. Easy to grow, just give normal cactus care. Protect from frost.
You will receive the plant shown in the images. Plants shown 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.
