A globose cactus plant that can become columnar over time. One of the most fascinating Astrophytums, highly appreciated by cactus lovers for its particular epidermis, entirely covered by numerous white dots. It can have three to ten (more commonly five) well-marked ribs, with a well-defined border by the white areoles, which over time take on a yellowish color. 'Fukuryu (type B)' is easily recognizable by the presence of additional reliefs that make the surface appear irregular. During spring, at the apex of the plant, large funnel-shaped yellow inflorescences bloom.
