Astrophytum asterias cv. Superkabuto

Cultivation and propagation: It is a summer grower plant relatively easy to grow. It is sometimes seen as a grafted plant but grows well on its own roots too. It is not too difficult in a greenhouse, although grows slowly.

Watering: Requires careful watering to keep plant compact. Water sparingly from March till October. Keep dry as soon as the temperature starts dropping in October and keep it perfectly dry in winter at temperatures from 5 to 15 degrees centigrade.

Hardiness: They need to be kept in a cool place during winter rest and are somewhat resistant to frost if kept on the dry side prior to, and during, cold weather. It tends to rot in winter during the resting phase, if kept wet.

Sun exposure: It needs a good amount of light. Light shade to full sun, its color tends to richer and darker when grown in light shade.
