The superb feature of some of this hybrids is due to the intersection between the traits of the ancestors and make  them very desiderable. The more beautiful the pattern and the markings, the more sought after the plant.  Many of the best have inherited by “Supercabuto” very large, white flecks, ribs are noticeable raised and have long spines clearly indicating the relationship with A. senilis.
This hybrid tends to be slower growing. The flower are also very beautiful.
