As you can tell we are very into the Astrophytum genus right now and for good reason. These lil guys are mesmerizing and quite fascinating. They are native to Mexico's Couhulia region, they receive strong light and very cold nights. We recently discovered after we left ours outside overwinter last year and it was still kicking along and actually grew a little. These are notoriously slow grower but these truly are generational plants, seeing 30-40 year old specimens are mindblowing since they can reach to about 3 ft tall at maturity.
These would do best in a bright filtered light if not in direct sun. These can go long periods without watering. They will like full waterings roughly every 2-3 weeks in the summer when the foliage starts to feel less firm. Watering can be cut back to roughly once a month in the colder months. They will need a super coarse cacti soil mix when repotting.
