Mathieu is not common !
instead of green, nature designed him yellow ! As he is keeping some green patches, he will do the photosynthesis without trouble and will grow big with right care !
No one of your friends will have the same kind of cactus that Mathieu is, because specimens of Astrophytum asterias ” variegata” are really rare on the collector plant market …
Usually you have to hunt for time before getting a nice shape and colors “yellow astro”
Growing on a very nice hand made ceramic pot, tree bark pattern on the pot
Mathieu has some style and girls know it
