Astrophytum asterias cv UFO
« on: Monday, 18 February 2013 - 17:23:28 »
Good afternoon dear friends,

In 2006 I have bought some seeds named Astrophytum asterias cv UFO from Koehres-Kakteen. Now I have only one plant that looks like an classic Astrophytum asterias. I will add a picture tomorrow. I am trying to find a suggestive picture with this cultivar but I cannot. The only picture that I found are under this links:

http://www.cactus-miroshnichenko.com.ua/photoalbum.php?photoalbum_id=6&n=Astrophytum+cv+%27Superkabuto%27#

Do you guys know about this cultivar? Does it have to have a hole in the apex or what? I asked the source of seeds about this, how they should be and they answered that they have the seeds from an Japanese collector and they do not know.

If you have any pictures with this form please add them.

Thank you,
Lucian

Hello! We are not so sure the name is properly used as japanese cultivar, but it should identify flat and starshape asterias.

marazz53 - thank you very much fr the uploads. I'm sorry that I didn't had time to upload some pictures with mine, I hope I'll do it today. Although my plants are so different from yours. I'm waiting impatient for the other photos.
Interesting...
