Astrophytum asterias cv superTINY

Asked them to choose two of their best super kabutos as these were Christmas presents for my wife. Took some time for them to arrive. Awesome packaging! But when we opened them we saw 2 really disappointingly small cacti. Not even near the ones featured above. I’m not recommending this product to anyone!
