Astrophytum onzuka (Star Cactus)
4” potted in terra cotta
Astrophytum are native to North America and Mexico and are commonly called “Star Cactus” due to their star-shaped structure when viewed from above. While some have spines, others have unique white flecking (an adaptation to protect them from the sun). When provided enough sunlight and proper care, they produce beautiful yellow flowers.
Like most cacti, they are slow growing and prefer bright, direct sunlight (6+ hours daily) and watering only when soil is completely dry. Pot in a well-draining cactus/succulent soil mix.
