ASTROPHYTUM SPECIES

Genus of four North American cacti, and one sprawling, octopus like member. All of which are found in Mexico and some of which appear in the United States as well.  The flowers are usually yellow or white. They grow solitary bodies, but some species will become short columnar later in life if properly maintained. Some also have distinctive white flecks with difference markings on their bodies. Astrophytum are ribbed and covered in aureoles from which sharp spines protrude, and these spines can be black or golden. They’re usually slow growing, and though mature specimens are quite impressive it can take years to nurture an Astrophytum to that level. Their free-growing flowers, however, which stick up from the apex, are quite lovely.

Bright light, but indirect light is the best, dry conditions, with sporadic watering in the summer and then a dry winter. During the growing season, water infrequently. Require well drained soil and shallow pots is the best.
