Astrophytum myriostigma is found in Mexico in mountainous terrain at 6000' in altitude. Basically globular, becoming more columnar with age. Spines are usually not present; rather the body is densely flocked with white "scales". Flowers are yellow and appear in summer. Protect from frost. Provide bright light; hardy to 20F; to 15"+ tall. Water thoroughly when soil is dry.
Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
