of Cacti and Succulents.


A beautiful  hybrid with 8 sharp ribs.

Many different Astrophytum hybrids have been developed involving Superkabuto and coahuilense and many of the more distinctive trait of some of the best forms of Superkabuto has been inherited from A. cohauilense..

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 “SUPERKABUTO” very large, white flecks and from A. coahuilense the Tomentose structure of flecks.  Ribs are usually eight ( like in A. asterias)  and have raised +/- sharp ribs clearly indicating the relationship with A. coahuilense. This hybrid are strong growing. The flower are also very beautiful.
