  Astrophytum hybrid ONZ-OR
(A. myriostigma cv. Onzuka x A. ornatum)

Cultivation and Mail Sale
of Cacti and Succulents.


A beautiful  hybrid with (usually) 8 sharp ribs.

Many very different Astrophytum hybrids have been developed involving Onzuka & A. ornatum and are now in cultivation.

The superb feature of some of this hybrids is due to the intersection between the traits of the ancestors and make  them very desirable. The more beautiful the pattern and the markings, the more sought after the plant.  Many of the best have inherited by “ONZUKA” very large, white flecks with V mark. Ribs are sharp usually eight (like in A. ornatum)  and are spineless (or whit very short spines) clearly indicating the relationship with A. myriostigma.
This hybrid are strong growing. The flower are also very beautiful.


Compare with the inverse hybrid  which is similar but with spines. Astrophytum hybrid OR-ONZ
