Sand Dollar Cactus | Astrophytum asterias 


Native to Mexico, this tiny dark green spineless cactus only grows to 2.5" in height and 6" in diameter. It does, however, produce spectacular pale yellow blooms.


These cacti are slow growing and require a lot of patience and care to reach their full potential. Bright light is a must. Prefers a chunk mineral rich cactus soil with light watering during the summer, but keep the soil dry in the winter. Relatively cold hardy, tolerating up to 20F in the winter. 

Featured in a 4" pot, you will receive a similar plant shipped semi-bare root.
