Astrophytum Myriostigma Variegata
This is a gorgeous variation of myriostigma that displays yellows, oranges and reds on its epidermis. Native to the highlands of Central and Northern Mexico.
Astrophytum myriostigma is a spineless succulent plant. A transverse section of the stem reveal a perfect star shaped form (like the common star-fish) giving the plant the appearance of a bishop’s mitre (hence the common name Bishop’s cap)
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.
