Astrophytum myriostigma - Bishop's Cap

$ 14.00

Astrophytum myriostigma, commonly called “Bishop’s Cap”, is an easy to care for,  spineless cactus, beloved for its star-like shape. In fact, the genus name Astrophytum literally means “star plant,” so-named for young plants' vertically segmented ribs (5 in the case of Bishop's Cap) which make the cactus look just like a star when viewed from above. Like other cacti, it does not ask for much water and thrives even with a very small root system. Eventually dislpaying yellow flowers, slow growth and small size makes this Astrophytum an ideal plant for bright windowsills.


• Light: Bright diffused to direct light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Let soil completely dry between waterings
• Considerations: Use a well-draining cactus/succulent soil, and select a planter with drainage


You'll get a healthy Astrophytum myriostigma that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Perfectly healthy!

I ordered four plants a few weeks ago, and they all arrived in great condition! It took about two to two and a half weeks form order to delivery. You can tell they were packaged with care. Looking forward to watching my Bishop's Cap grow.
