Mini Starfish Flower

Dark Red/Purple Flower Form

This plant is our own CoronaCactus hybrid grown from open pollinated seed.  While still very similar to the species variety, being open pollinated we cannot be sure of it being true. The stems are thin and do not grow very tall and it freely branches to form clusters. This plant grows best in sun to part shade. Lovely purple tones will appear when grown in stronger sun. Lightly water the plant in the summer months while it is growing and greatly reduce the amount of water in the winter during the dormant period. This plant can rot easily if over watered. The flower is a dark red/purple color and is a little more shapely than the species variety, it’s also a little bit larger, but still small.
