Astrophytum asterias cv. Superkabuto
Astrophytum asterias cv. Superkabuto is a nursery produced cultivar; the existent forms were originally selected by japanese gardeners.
Characteristic of this cactacea is the densly maculate appearance due to the mosaic of extensive white spots on its epidermis. Different forms of Superkabuto are distincted by the different patterns formed by the spots: they range from the “white-type” (enterely white), to the “Snow-type” (with woolly spots), to the “zebra-type”.
