Astrophytum ornatum f. variegated (Variegated)

What makes this cactus special and unique is its variegation, you can recognize it thanks to the various lighter areas present on the epidermis of the plant because of the lack of chlorophyll in those certain points. Known also as "Star cactus" - "Cactus stella" due to the shape of its ribs that resemble a star, it has an initially spherical stem, with time tending to become cylindrical. Its green-grey epidermis is enriched by a thick white dotting. From sparse white and woolly areoles come out long rigid thorns of red-brown colour. In the warmer periods of the year, at the apex, it generates big lemon yellow flowers, really ornamental and lively!
