Astrophytum strongylogonum cv. Smyle
« on: Wednesday, 12 June 2013 - 23:02:22 »
Does anyone got an idea how this cv. looks like? I sown some seeds of strongylogonum cv Smyle from Koehres this year but they don't show nothing yet.
Koehres has one photo of myrio cv Smyle in their gallery:

It looks, I don't know, like Kikko?

It looks like a haku-jo costa or something similar, but what smyle refers to? the white V on the areole?

It would be the saddest cactus smile ever... Maybe it's very joyful only in Germany...  :P

No offence.  ;)

costa is really similar to strong.... to me it seems a hakujo  (kikko?!?) clone. it seems a lot of things, but not a stable line yet, for sure!
