Its curious and globular shape, characterized by ribs with raised dots on the surface, has given to this succulent plant the common name of "Bishop's Mitre.” The crested Astrophytum coahuilense is characterized by an unusual symmetry, which gives it a particular appearance and makes it very fascinating; the beauty of this succulent plant is even more evident during flowering, thanks to the production of yellow flowers with red throats. To enjoy the magnificence of this cactus for a long time and keep it healthy, it is necessary to know a few simple rules. The plant should be ideally exposed in luminous places, protected from the scorching rays of the sun, without rapid temperature changes. Watering must be done only in summer, preferably with calcareous water, letting the soil dry before watering again; in this period it is good to use a liquid fertilizer. During the repotting phase, it should be used a soil specific for succulent plants, in other words a very porous one to promote drainage. Its growth is slow and new sprouts are rarely produced, therefore production is basically achieved during seeding; however, this species of Astrophytum is very resistant and without difficulty will become “your personal corner of desert charm.”
