Astrophytum capricorne - Goat's Horn Cactus

Note: Sale plants are in 3" pots

Astrophytum capricorne, the "Goat’s Horn Cactus," is so-named for its beautiful curved spines, which are said to resemble the horns of a goat. While young plants at this stage are round, they become egg-shaped as they grow and, with age, develop a columnar form. Like most Astrophytum, the Goat's Horn Cactus has a star-like appearance when viewed from above, typically with 8 ribs emanating from a central point. Eventually displaying yellow flowers, this is a perfect addition to a sunny windowsill for collectors and beginners alike.

PLANT CARE

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

WHAT TO EXPECT

You'll get a healthy Astrophytum capricorne 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.
