Astrophytum Senile has larger stems, lacks hair flecks, and is also so densely wrapped with long soft spines that the body is hardly visible. It requires filtered sunlight to the full sun. Light shade to full sun, its color tends to richer and darker when grown in light shade. Astrophytum Senile is best to be careful watering to keep the plant compact.
Also known as Astrophytum Capricorne subs. Senile
Australian Desert Blooms Nursery is producing many more cacti, cactus, and succulents for you to buy online. If anytime this cactus is out of stock know for sure that it will be back as quickly as possible. As we produce all our own stock here in Ipswich near Brisbane.
Watch your Astrophytum Senile for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.
Astrophytum Senile requires more sunlight if it looks like growing out of shape. Burning is a common fact when having new plants. Best to gradually give them more sunlight as the weeks go by. Instead of placing it in straight sunlight.
Allow them to sit for a week before giving them a good drink. Depending on the season. Make sure they dry out completely before watering again. Don’t forget to give them a spray with soapy water to keep the bugs off them. And provide very good ventilation.
