Astrophytum ornatum is a short columnar cactus known for its star-shaped form when seen from above, with white bands a serious set of spines. It can be found in canyons and limestone cliffs of San Luis Potosí and Guanajuato in Mexico. Of all the astrophytums the ornatum is the largest, fastest, and easiest to grow. Beautiful lemon-yellow flowers bloom from the top.

Please note: Every plant will vary in size, color and shape from the one pictured. Planter is not included. Plant ships bare root.

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: Astrophytum 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.

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: Astrophytum 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. 3-4" tall and 3-4" at widest point. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
Origin: Native to the canyons and limestone cliffs of San Luis Potosí and Guanajuato in Mexico.
