Astrophytum asterias cv Super Kabuto, is a nursery crested cultivar from Japan. The fuzzy white patches on the epidermis are distinctive from the standard astrophytum asterias in that they cover substantially more area.
It prefers bright, indirect light. Water sparingly, ensuring well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging. Use a cactus mix for optimal growth. In its native range, it can reach a maximum height of around 12 inches and a width of about 8 inches.
During the growing season (spring and summer), fertilize monthly with a balanced, diluted succulent fertilizer. Allow the soil to dry between waterings, adjusting frequency based on environmental conditions. Repot every 2-3 years in the spring to refresh the soil and provide more space for growth.
