Astrophytum asterias CV Neil Pardyi
« on: Monday, 06 January 2014 - 14:58:17 »
Hi,

I want to buy some seeds from Kakteen Piltz and in the available seeds list there is a Astrophytum asterias cv. Neil Pardyi.

I don't know what that is. Is there anyone who as this cultivar? Please add some photos if you have it or give me a link so I can see how it looks like.

Thank you,

Lucian.

I'm not sure it is a pure asterias cultivar. Several years ago, I bought a plant under that name from CactusHeaven - and it clearly was a capricorne hybrid with Super-Kabuto. It looked exactly like my own cross here: http://e-aiand.com/kollektsioon/displayimage.php?album=3&pid=23#top_display_media.
Thus, I think it's an asterias hybrid.

robinast thank you for your answer. That's what I thought. Your plant is very nice though, even it's a hybrid.
