Astrophytum capricorne Family: Cactaceae. A close relative of the Bishop's Cap cactus (A. myriostigma). This species has the largest, most prominent ribs in the genus. The spines are long and twisted, but not that sharp. Plants are covered in dense white to brownish felt. Flowers are big and yellow with a red center. They are produced off and on during the warmer months.
Easy to grow, just give normal cactus care. Protect from frost.
This plant is from the same batch of seedlings as my main A. capricorne listing but is different enough that I'm giving the plant its own listing.
You will receive the plant shown in the images. Plant shown in a 4" pot.
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.
