Description:

It is considered one of the most beautiful Astrophytums ever, highly sought after for its rarity due to the very few specimens found in nature. Globose body, depressed at the apex and further flattened in the center, is made up of wide and slightly protruding ribs. in the center of those you can see peculiar white and silky areoles adorned with white dots. When it’s time, giant yellow flowers with an intense red center will blossom at its apex. The name “asterias” indicates the star-like appearance due to the arrangement of areoles and ribs: its symmetry is truly unparalleled!

Plant care:

Requires an exposure to full sun since it requires a lot of light all year around. When the plants are still very young, it is advisable to prottingect them from direct sun rays during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 4 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once every two weeks in spring and summer, once every two months in autumn and suspend it completely in winter.

A well-draining and mineral-rich substrate is an optimal solution, for example a soil suitable for cacti, to which pumice can be added.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
