Astrophytum capricorne (Cactus)

A globose cactus plant, which over time becomes columnar and can reach up to 1 meter in height. Its green stem is more or less covered with white downy spots which distinguish it in the genus. The ribs are well marked with a thin margin, have sparse yellowish downy areoles from which tufts of long, twisted, flattened and brownish-gray spines grow. These spines are similar to the horns of a capricorn, from which it takes its name "Capricorne". During summer, at the apex it blooms with large funnel-shaped inflorescences of a yellow color with a red interior.
