Astrophytum ornatum 'Star Cactus' is a dark green cactus with a lot of spines and silvery scales that appears star-shaped from above. This succulent has a globular body that eventually becomes more columnar with age.
Be sure to give your 'Star Cactus' succulent plant plenty of bright light, porous soil with adequate drainage, and ample airflow. Water this astrophytum thoroughly when soil is completely dry and always let it drain to prevent root rot.
Astrophytum ornatum 'Star Cactus' blooms in summer months with pale yellow flowers.

Plant Size & Appearance
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2.5", 4", 5" etc). Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent rot and or freezing of the plants. They will plump back up after planting :)
