Pack of 25 seeds of pure Astrophytum species.

This is a small, but extremely popular group of cactus. Perhaps better known for its hybrids, here you have a chance to grow the original species. There are 5 or 6 species and numerous varieties (depends which books you read).

Slow growing, but flowering whilst still very small. They have beautiful yellow flowers, which have a warm lemon scent when the weather is particularly hot (almost un-noticeable in cooler weather). The seed germinates very rapidly, perhaps in as little as 2 days. They can take many years to grow to large dimensions, but may flower after 3 or 4 years.
Seedlings after their first summer

This seed has been harvested from cultivated specimens, so the wild populations of these beautiful plants have not been affected.
