Astrophytum asterias 'Super Kabuto'

This is from our weird pet collection of crests, monsters and other strange creatures. Probably to most popular and most sought after cultivar, Super Kabuto has many different forms. This one is grafted, but they don't have to be. They grow fine on their own roots.
We're finally getting a heat wave with temperatures in the 90s F, but the nighttime temps drop down to the low 60s F so it isn't too oppressive at night. As long as the temps don't go up into the hundreds, the plants love it and new flowers start appearing.
Enjoy your plants!
