Astrophytum myriostigma
Common Name(s): bishop' s miter, bishop' s cape; Mexican names: birreta of obispo, bonete, mitra
Stalk: Globular to cylindric up to 60(-100) cm tall (but usually about 150 cm tall) and 10-20 cm in diameter, bright green, covered with many minute white hairy scales that give it a characteristic chalk-white or silvery-grey appearance, but sometime naked. The scales are composed of very fine interwoven hairs, which, under a microscope, are very pretty object.
Ribs: Usually 5, sometimes 4 (3). With age they increase to 8 or more
Areolas: Closed together The areoles in the older plants are quite different from those of juvenile specimens. They are large, very woolly,  often brownish/reddish (but variable in colour from white/ yellowish to tan/black) and showy.
Flowers: The glossy yellow, sweet scented flowers appear continuously during the summer 4 – 7 cm long
Fruits: reddish fruit, 1 inch in diameter (2.5 cm).
Water Needs: regular water throughout the summer. Keep dry as soon as the temperature starts dropping in October.
Cultivation: it is one of the easier Astrophytum to grow. The Astrophytum myriostigma grows much faster with a low nitrogen content fertilizer in spring and summer.
Min Temperature: 50°F (10°C); Frost Tolerance: Hardy to 20°F (-6°C) for short periods
Propagation Methods: Almost exclusively by seed. Plants are sometimes grafted onto column-shaped cacti. Cutting scions from a flourishing plant is almost a crime because the scions do not root easily

Astrophytum myriostigma Japanese cultivar ONZUKA

Super Kabuto:
 the origin of the most famous Japanese cultivar is still quite unclear  there are several versions of its discovery.  The official version is that of Tony Sato and partly transcribed in the Astrobase (in English and German).
 The mother plant was found in 1981 by a Japanese (Masaomi Takeo) in a nursery in the United States.  The Astrophytum was in very poor condition, abandoned in a corner of the nursery.  Despite the poor health of the plant, Mr. Takeo notes that it has developed large white dots in unusual asterias.  This plant is a natural mutation occurred in a seedling seed habitat

Super Kabuto cultivar differs from the type species by its more dense with flaking white spots larger and fluffy. For cons, the areolas remain the same asterias. This cultivar is smaller, with a maximum of 8-10 cm in diameter.The epidermis is a tendency to split, which is inconvenient for the aesthetics of the plant.

 Mr. Takeo quick to bring it back to Japan where he manages to do it again take root and flower the same year.  Cross with his collection of classic asterias, it gets a hundred seeds and get 30% of seedlings with large white spots characteristic of the parent plant.
 Tony Sato, Japanese producer of cactus, buys the mother plant and all its seedlings Super Kabuto he calls "the Super Asterias!" 
Cv. 
Super Kabuto is of mixed mutant plant native habitat with asterias type, which explains the high variability encountered in this cultivar.
Description:  Super Kabuto cultivar differs from the type species by its more dense with flaking white spots larger and fluffy.  For cons, the aureola remain the same asterias.  This cultivar is smaller, with a maximum of 8-10 cm in diameter.  The epidermis is a tendency to split, which is inconvenient for the aesthetics of the plant.





Astrophytum myriostigma variant quadricostatum

Within the natural range of myriostigma, there is no population where the number of ribs is stable throughout the life of the plant. This species has indeed the characteristic form new rib during its development. 4 or 5 ribs in the seedling stage, the cactus will gradually increase to 6-7 adults or 8 ribs as it grows. Some are hesitant and produce quickly abort ribs, giving an appearance of "beak". But it is rare that the number of ribs does not change. However, it is the myriostigmas of "Jaumave" that tend to keep longer look quadricostatum acquired as juveniles.
We can not therefore speak of 'variety' based on the number of ribs, but only a 'form' as this character is not stable.
The most common among myriostigma is to have 4 or 5 ribs but it is common to count up to 8 with extreme values ​​from March to November!
To avoid the formation of new coastline, these precious myriostigma are grown in a very poor substrate by reducing watering.

Echinocactus grusonii
Common Name(s): Golden Barrel Cactus, Golden Ball Cactus, Mother-in-Law's Cushion, Mother-in-law's-seat  
Origin: native to central Mexico
Description: Growing as a large roughly spherical globe, it may eventually reach over a meter in height after many years. The young seedlings like the other Echinocactus and Ferocactus seedlings, the rib structure is not yet apparent, and they have pronounced tubercles making them look superficially like Mammillarias.

Spines: straight golden yellow radial spines
Flowers: 1.5 to 2 inches (4-5 cm) yellow flowers; blooming from end of March to end of July.
Sun Exposure: Full sun to partial sun
 Water Needs: Water generously in summer; less watering in winter.

Cultivation: Widely cultivated in warmer climates around the world, it is considered easy to grow and relatively fast growing. It has been increasingly used as an architectural plant in garden design
E. grusonii are summer-growing and pretty easy plants to cultivate. They are suited for any rich, well drained soil such us clay, pumice, lava grit, and only a little peat or leaf-mould. If potted, repot preferably in the spring, if their roots become cramped.  Generally, they should be repotted every other year in order to provide fresh soil. However, this doesn't necessarily mean they'll need larger containers. Fill about a quarter of the pot with broken crocks, gravel, etc. to promote good drainage. After repotting, do not water for a week or more. Water regularly during the growth cycle (this plant need plenty of water, but do not over water and let their soil dry out between watering), and also needs to be avoided wetting the body of this plant while it is in sunlight. A wet cactus in the sun light can cause sun burning which can lead to scares or even fungal infections and death, keep rather dry in winter. No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots. Feed with a high potassium fertilizer in summer. (cactus-art.biz)

Keep dry in winter or when night temperatures remain below 10° C, it is hardy to -4°C for a short period. Assure good ventilation.

Turbinicarpus lophophoroides

Description: Solitary, flattened globose cactus, greyish-green or bluish-green stem, up to 1.5 inch tall (4 cm), 2 inches in diameter (5 cm); tubercles organized in 12 spirals; small woolly tubercles with 3 to 5 spreading spines.
Root: Thick and delicate.
Stem: Grayish-green or bluish-green stem that doesn’t exceed the diameter of (3) 4.5-5 (10 cm) by 4.5 high. 
Areolas: Very pronounced, woolly, later naked. With the age, the areoles become woollier and can get to completely transform the aspect of the plant.
Flowers: The flowers are white with a pinkish tinge, 1.5 inches in diameter (3.5 cm). Usually rather large and white with a pinkish tinge, 3.5-5 cm in diameter.  They are developed from the new very woolly areoles in the apex of the plant. It has scarcely irritable stamens, straight but thin, with a low insertion of the primary filaments, while in all the other species, (including the Gymnocactus and Viereckii Series) the insertion is high and the stamens are very irritable. This indicates that this species has some primitive characters. Anthers yellow/orange. Stigmas white
Sun Exposure: Light shade to part sun
Cultivation: It’s a plant adapted to a specific type of soil and quite prone to rot especially after the first flowering. A 10 -30% of natural gypsum could be added to a very well drained soil. Watering should be rather infrequent, but abundant, so that the soil becomes completely soaked. Careful watering away from the body of the plant will allow the areoles to keep their wool. The fact that the plant retracts into the soil and assume a grey-green colouring between watering, is perfectly natural and doesn’t cause any damage. Keep dry in winter or when night temperatures remain below 10° C, it is hardy to -4°C for a short period.  Assure a good ventilation. Exposures: Full sun where it obtains a natural-looking flat, or part sun.
 Min Temperature: 55°F (12°C)
Frost Tolerance: Hardy to 25°F (-4°C) for a short period
Propagation Methods: Seeds, which has good powers of germination, or from shoots which are grafted.
