The Astrophytum asterias is a popular spineless cactus. In the wild it is almost extinct, mostly due to habitat destruction. In the wild it decreases in size when lacking water and might be covered with dust during the dry season. The rain makes it swell and washes it, making it ready to enjoy the sunlight. The white flecking is very variable from clone to clone. 'Super Kabuto' (second picture) is a Japanese cultivar with extremely abundant flecking.
