Care Guide

Astrophytum is an easy cactus to care for. This plant can handle full morning sun, and will enjoy a sunny spot in a cactus greenhouse. Plant it in a gritty and well-aerated soil mix that allows for free drainage of water. Water it well in the spring and summer growing season, but keep dry in winter. Do not water on top of the stem, as water may damage the ‘fluffy’ growths on the areoles.

Growing season

Spring and summer.

Propagation 

Seeds only.
