Description

The Astrophytum is a dotted spineless succulent plant, usually solitary or with very few basal branches. A transverse section of the stem reveals 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). Its stem is globular bright green, covered with many minute white hairy scales that give it a characteristic chalk-white or silvery-grey appearance. The scales are composed of very fine interwoven hairs, which, under a microscope, are very pretty objects.
