Product Description

Astrophytum Magnifica






Frailea is a small cactus, usually solitary, sometimes branching basally. The stem is subglobose or shortly columnar, with about 17 ribs.

It is similar Frailea mammifera, but has shorter spines with more of a tidy look, whereas  mammifera has longer spines and has more of a shaggy look. 

The rare blooms comes with sulphur-yellow flowers larger than the plant itself. These fully developed flowers will open only in intense heat but can still set seed even if they fail to open.


Grow them in rich, porous soil, and let them dry out between waterings. It enjoys full sun, and it can take on a near black appearance when kept in bright light.  In a shaded position the plants grow faster, but are not flat shaped or dark coloured. During the dry season plants retract completely under the ground

Landscape Uses

It is used as an ornamental, It is an excellent plant for container growing. It always looks good and stays small.

The easiest to keep alive - Cactus thrive on neglect! Coming from desert climates cactus love sun! However beware of the Indian afternoon sun! Keeping them in extreme heat, especially behind a glass which magnifies the heat can cause the cactus to burn. If you notice the cactus turning brown or yellow on the side facing the sun, try giving it a cooler place to thrive in!

For watering cacti, the golden rule is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering! This will stop the roots from rotting. It is advised to always use a pot with a drainage hole so that excess water can get drained out. If kept in a sunny area, you will need to water it once every week. If it is in a semi shaded or filtered light area, you might need to water it once in 2 weeks.

Cacti like soil that is well aerated and fast draining. You can fertilise the cactus in the summer months when it is in its growing season. During the winters it is best to cut back on any fertiliser and let the plant rest.
