Origin

Nursery produced cultivar from Japan. Astrophytum coahuilense, the version of this plant in the wild, is native to Mexico.

Sun

Astrophytum plants do best in full sun, at least 5 to 8 hours a day. Avoid intense afternoon sun. Grow outdoors in light shade or indoors in a sunny window with southern exposure and direct sun.

Water

Astrophytums prefer to stay on the dry side. In the summer water them only when the soil has dried out entirely. Always err on the side of underwatering. They are built to withstand drought, and overwatering is one of the quickest ways to kill them.

Tula's Tip

Astrophytum plants flower once they’ve matured. This can take up to six years. Exposing your cactus to drought while it is dormant during the winter will encourage blooming during the growing season. Fertilize: Astrophytums do not require fertilizer though it can be added to give container grown plants a boost or to supplement poor soil. Apply a water-soluble, balanced fertilizer monthly, diluted at half strength.

Size

Approx. 2" tall and 2" wide. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
