Product Description

Astrophytum is a genus of six species of cactus, native to North America

These species are sometimes referred to as living rocks. The generic name is derived from the Greek words άστρον (astron), meaning "star," and φυτόν (phyton), meaning "plant".

Astrophytum cv ONZUKA hybrids are a group of cultivated cacti that belong to the Astrophytum genus. These hybrids are a result of crossbreeding different species and varieties of Astrophytum cacti, particularly Astrophytum asterias, with the goal of producing unique and visually appealing plants. The "ONZUKA" name is often associated with these hybrids, and they are highly sought after by cactus enthusiasts and collectors. Here are some key characteristics and information about Astrophytum cv ONZUKA hybrids:

  1. Appearance: Astrophytum cv ONZUKA hybrids typically exhibit characteristics that set them apart from the typical species in the Astrophytum genus. They often feature intricate patterns, markings, and colors on their bodies, which can make them quite striking and visually appealing.

  2. Patterns and Colors: These hybrids can display various patterns and colors, such as white or yellow flecks, lines, or speckles on a green or sometimes blue-green background. The exact appearance can vary widely between individual plants and hybrids.

  3. Spination: Astrophytum cacti are known for their minimal and often absent spination (spines). Astrophytum cv ONZUKA hybrids typically have fewer and shorter spines compared to some other cactus species.

  4. Growth Habit: Like other Astrophytum cacti, these hybrids are usually slow-growing and tend to have a spherical or globular growth habit. They may reach a height of up to 30 centimeters (about 12 inches) or more over many years.

  5. Cultivation: These cacti are cultivated as ornamental plants and are often grown by cactus collectors and enthusiasts. They thrive in well-draining cactus or succulent potting mixes and require plenty of sunlight. They are also drought-tolerant and should be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

  6. Propagation: Astrophytum cv ONZUKA hybrids can be propagated through seeds or by taking stem cuttings, although growing from seed is the most common method to maintain the unique characteristics of the hybrid.

  7. Collectibility: These hybrids are highly valued by cactus collectors due to their unique and aesthetically pleasing appearances. As a result, they can be relatively expensive compared to more common cactus varieties.

It's important to note that the appearance of Astrophytum cv. ONZUKA hybrids can vary significantly between individual plants, and new hybrids may continue to be developed, leading to a wide range of visual characteristics within this group. Additionally, the name "ONZUKA" may be associated with specific hybrids developed by individual collectors or nurseries, each with its own distinct features.
