Astrophytum asterias hybrid is the result of crossbreeding from A. asterias and A. myryostigma, and shows some interesting intermediate features of both the parents.

Plenty of sunshine will keep this cacti more than happy. In a glass room you may have to provide some shade during a hot summers day to prevent sunburn
Feed every 4 weeks with a Nitrogen-poor and Potassium & Phosphorus-rich fertilizer during summer
