Astrophytum capricorne, 1 year + 6 months

The Astrophytum seedlings are not growing spines for some reason. This seedling has 1 and a half spine. I bet I just have to be patient.

Also, I like how my failed attempt at growing A. asterias “super kabuto” isn’t over yet. My tiny 2 years and 4 months old seedling is still alive after having stalled completely and half rotted away since it stopped growing 2 years ago. I’m not giving up on him!
