Habitat:

Astrophytum myriostigma cv. Fukuryu nudum is a japanese nursery produced cultivar.

Description:

Astrophytum myriostigma cv. Fukuryu nudum is a pretty rare form of A. myriostigma Fukuryu type B. It is a usually solitary plant, and its stem is characterised by its irregular appearance: it presents more ribs than usual, with many, irregular and well visible “warts” in between. The epidermis is smooth.

Cultivation:

This Astrophytum is a relatively easy-to-grow species. It needs a mineral, well-draining soil, with little humus. Water sparingly from March till October, letting the soil getting dry before watering again. To avoid root rot and frost damages, keep it dry from the beginning of autumn to the end of winter. It is theoretically hardy to -7°C, but during cold months keep it in a cool place. It does well from full sun to light shade.

Propagation:

Propagation is almost enterily done by seeds.

Curiosity:

The japanese word “Fukuryu” refers to the “extra” ribs on the stem of the plant.
