Astrophytum myriostigma Family: Cactaceae. The Bishop's Cap cactus. One of the most popular of all small cacti, this species is thornless. It is covered in white felt. Flowers bright yellow and produced throughout the summer. This is the normal, 5-ribbed, form of the species. Easy to grow, just give normal cactus care. Protect from frost.
This is the Nuda form of the species. It is the same as the normal form except it lacks the characteristic white felt.
Plants shown in a 4" pot. Plants are fairly small now, roughly 1" diameter.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
