The Star Cactus (Astrophytum asterias) is a small and distinctive cactus native to northern Mexico and parts of Texas. It’s known for its striking appearance, with a spherical shape covered in white or yellowish star-shaped markings.

These markings are actually densely packed areoles that contrast with the cactus’s dark green to gray-green body. During late spring to early summer, the Star Cactus produces small, golden-yellow flowers at its apex.

Caring for this cactus is relatively simple. It thrives in bright, indirect sunlight but can tolerate some direct sun exposure. Like most cacti, it requires well-draining soil and should be allowed to dry out completely between waterings.

It’s crucial to protect it from frost and extreme cold. The Star Cactus can be propagated from seeds or offsets, small offshoots that grow at the base of the main plant. This cactus’s compact size makes it a charming addition to your indoor or outdoor cactus collection.
