Astrophytum is a cactus endemic to Northeastern and Central Mexico. We recommend providing strong direct light for your cactus indoors and water every other week.
Astrophytum grow quite well outdoors. We recommend providing filtered sun for your cactus as the tissue can be sensitive to receiving too much direct sunlight. However, tropical and sub-tropical climates allow this cactus to be grown in full sun. If you happen to live in a drier climate that does dip below freezing, you will want to bring your cactus inside until the following season.
