  • Posted by Baja_Costero (Baja California - Zone 11b) on Aug 19, 2019 8:06 PM concerning plant:
    Astrophytum cultivar with dramatic white markings and white or pale yellow flowers. The word kabuto refers to a type of helmet. This cultivar is likely to be of hybrid origin, with A. capricorne and A. asterias in the mix. Seedling offspring may be rather variable in terms of markings, from spots to lines, blobs, and nearly all-white plants. Extreme selections can be spectacular.
