A globular succulent plant that can become columnar over time. One of the most known Astrophytums, appreciated by succulent lovers for its particular green epidermis, entirely covered with white dots that give it an almost silver appearance. It can have from three to ten (most commonly five) well marked ribs, sometimes slightly spiraled. This cactus features sparse areoles with small curled spines, which makes this plant even more distinctive. During spring, at the apex of the cactaceae, large funnel-shaped inflorescences bloom, that are entirely yellow. It is a plant easy to grow, therefore suitable even for beginners.
