NYC CUSTOMERS ONLY
Due to COVID-19 and NY PAUSE, our NYC greenhouse is sadly closed to the public this season. But all is not lost for New York's xerophiles — the plants shown below are available for free local pickup (Sundays from 12p-4p) at the Forgetmenot General Store, 138 Division St. All profits go directly to our crew to help them stay afloat in these uncertain times. If you want to also order any non-NYC products, please make two separate transactions.

For those interested in delivery, please checkout with the local pickup option and then email boss@hotcactus.nyc to get a delivery quote. Joe has a Subaru.

 

Astrophytum asterias hybrid (LARGE)
$212.00

Astrophytum asterias is a beautiful and remarkably variable Astrophytum species. It does not have the typical covering of spines common to most cacti, but is instead adorned with tiny speckled tufts of hair.

Japanese growers have become masters of hybridization of this and other Astrophytum species. Here we have a grafted A. asterias hybrid grown hard in the Texas sun. Mature specimen, 20+ years.

Currently growing in a 6” cylinder terra-cotta pot.
