Astrophytum ornatum Family: Cactaceae. A close relative of the Bishop's Cap cactus (A. myriostigma). The plant is strongly ribbed and covered with white felt. Unlike the Bishop's Cap this species forms numerous yellow spines. For several years the plant will grow bigger in a globular form, but will eventually become upright. Very old specimens can reach 6' or more. Don't worry if you have limited space, it can live in a 6" pots for many, many years (upwards of 10 years or more). Flowers bright yellow and produced throughout the summer. Easy to grow, just give normal cactus care. Protect from frost.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one similar. Plants 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.
