A globular cactus native to Mexico, Astrophytum is an easy-to-grow plant, best known for its more extravagant variants created in greenhouses. These deformations would be due to random genetic mutations and hormonal imbalances; among them we have unnatural replication of shoots, unusual branches, nodule formations and other modifications. The monstrous varieties tend to be more delicate than the crested ones, however for these unique and exclusive traits they are among the most sought after by enthusiasts.

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.
