Astrophytum myriostigma cv HAKUUN nudum
White cloud on a smooth green epidermis
 

Description: This is one of the most famous and appreciated Japanese cultivars, the name means "cloudy sky" and refers to the characteristic maculated epidermis (with white cloud-like patches) The plant in this pages is the nude form with shining green epidermis, the common  "HAKUUN" instead has the typically white dotted  epidermis of A. myriostigma.

Water sparingly from March till October and keep perfectly dry in winter at temperatures from 5 to 15 degrees centigrade. (but it is Hardy to -7C for short periods) In the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!! Sun Exposure: Light shade to full sun.
