Astrophytum ornatum     9/3/20
A beautiful plant with a wonderful flower, which appears from Spring to late Summer, as is typical of the genus. I'm going to transplant this individual this Winter into a much bigger pot. It's currently about basketball size. I want to see it at 6 feet (2 m) which is what the books give at it's eventual size. I saw three six footers in the Phoenix AZ Botanical garden a few years ago. They were not pretty. I hope to improve on that sorry lot.   (09/48)
