Astrophytum Myriostigma Hekiran Type A
Age: 4-7 years
Origin and Habitat: It is very similar to the other myriostigma, it deviates in two ways from the well-known typical form. It lacks white flecks, giving it a bright green or gray-green overall appearance, and it exhibits partially developed extra ribs.
Description: Astrophytum myriostigma is a spineless succulent plant. A transverse section of the stem reveal a perfect star shaped form giving the plant the appearance of a bishop's mitre (hence the common name Bishop's cap)
Blooming season: A myriostigma seems to flower independently of day length, flowering intermittently throughout the warm months from the end of winter to the start of autumn.
