Further information on your plant

All plants are measured from the bottom of the nursery pot to the tip of the plant and if a height is specified, this is an approximate height, not set in stone. As all plants are living things, they will vary in size throughout the year, and we do our best to give a guide as to the size you can expect. If in doubt drop us an email hello@leafculture.co.uk. And lastly, minor flaws in the leaves might be present and will not be covered for compensation. It's worth noting that plants naturally age like people and are rarely perfect.

Meet Astrophytum myriostigma, commonly known as Bishop's Hat or Star Cactus – a distinctive and captivating addition to your plant collection. Its appellation is inspired by the star-shaped ridges that adorn its dome-like structure, resembling the hat worn by a bishop. One of the easiest houseplants ever!!

What sets Astrophytums apart is their individuality; no two plants are identical. Exhibiting 3-7 star-shaped spikes, their colours vary, from a glossy vibrant green to those with tiny white dots, creating a strikingly bright appearance.

Unlike typical cacti with their sharp spikes, Astrophytum myriostigma boasts a smooth and aesthetically pleasing surface. This makes it an ideal choice for cactus enthusiasts who appreciate the charm of these plants but prefer a more gentle touch.

Whether your Astrophytum showcases a shiny green surface or an array of bright dots, one thing is certain – it adds a touch of celestial allure to your decor.

Taking care of Astrophytum myriostigma is a breeze, aligning with the straightforward care routine of many cacti. Here are some tips to ensure your cactus stays happy and healthy. Embrace its love for sunlight by placing Astrophytum in direct sunlight on a windowsill or in a spot with bright, indirect light.

Watering: This drought-tolerant plant thrives with minimal water and prefers to dry out between waterings. During summer, check your plant monthly, and as the days get colder and longer, reduce watering to every 2-3 months.

When in doubt, remember this golden rule: It's better to water too little than too much.
