Astrophytum capricorne, 3 years + 5 months old

This cactus is sooo slow growing I can’t believe it. I grew this from seeds 3,5 years ago and it’s only 3 cm in diameter. It just grew a spine-looking thing, but it’s easy to miss. The spine is poking out right at the top of the plant. Hopefully this will grow into one of the characteristic curly spines, that made Astrophytum capricorne a popular cactus.
