We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Astrophytum myrostigma

Astrophytum myriostigma is found in Mexico in mountainous terrain at 6000' in altitude. This plant is basically globular, becoming more columnar with age. Spines are usually not present; rather the body is densely flocked with white "scales" which give the plant an overall silver or white appearance. Flowers are yellow and appear in summer. Astrophytums require bright light with ample airflow. It is essential that the soil is very porous, with excellent drainage, as can be achieved by the addition of extra pumice or perlite. Water thoroughly when dry during the active growing season. Protect from frost. Astrophytum are cactus but don't have spines. They will thrive in partial shade to full sun. Water sparingly and in winter keep dry at a temperature between 46-50 degrees F Astrophytum are cactus but don't have spines. They will thrive in partial shade to full sun.
