Bishop's Cap Cactus Astrophytum Myriostigma

43 reviews
Size
  • Astrophytum Myriostigma is a cactus that has no spikes but instead the white hairy scales give it a characteristic chalk-white or silvery-grey appearance. It often has 5 ribs, but can grow up to 8 ribs with age. Astrophytum Myriostigma can grow up to 8 inches (20 cm) in diameter.

    Its flowers are funnel-shaped, glossy yellow, sweet scented, and can grow up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) long. Mature plants can produce deep red fruits that are up to 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Yellow.

    Plenty of direct sunlight.

    Porous, well-drained.

    Water moderately in the summer but keep the cactus completely dry in the winter when temperatures are from 40 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit (5 to 15 degrees Celsius).

    Feed the cactus with a low nitrogen content fertilizer in the spring and summer can help it grow much faster.

    - Bubblewrap to ensure the quality and safety of the plants.

    Though it is not yet possible to completely eliminate plastic from our packing process, we take responsibility for our plastic emissions by partnering with CleanHub. For every 1lb plastic we use, 1lb of plastic from nature will be collected and recycled before it can end up in our oceans.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging: https://succulentsbox.com/pages/shipping-return-policy

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Lovely little plant

I saw these at the Phoenix Botanical Garden. I’m hoping to bring this bit of the desert to my wintry home!
