Exhibited at the CSSSA Meeting today:

This plant of Astrophytum capricorne has only been in my collection since March 2009, but it has flowered twice since then (last year and in December 2010) and approximately tripled in size since I purchased it. I am very impressed, particularly as each of the flowers has exceeded the size of the plant! It is a source of amazement to me that the flowers can even get through the mat of dense spines on the top of the plant!
