Astrophytum asterias 'variegata' Family: Cactaceae. A beautifully variegated specimen the Sea Urchin cactus. This is the nuda form of the species (it has some flecking) so it shows the variegation even better. Makes beautiful yellow flowers with a red throat in summer. Fairly easy to care for, except it can be very fussy about overwatering especially in winter. In fact, you probably should water minimally if at all during the winter. Can take light frost when more mature but best to protect when possible.
You will receive the plant shown in the images. It is shown growing in a 3" pot. Plant is on its own roots.
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.
