Meet Astra! She’s a carefree, wild child whose heart grows like a star. As easy as can be, Astra requires very little care. As a star herself, she even prefers to be in a lower lit corner so that her shine can be better seen. No need for lots of water, or for much fertilizer, Astra is happy to be hanging out in any room you decide to put her in. Her thick, variegated cylinder shaped leaves will slowly grow into a large star shape.

We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent soil.

THIS PLANT SHIPS AS A 2″ FULLY ROOTED STARTER PLANT, AS SHOWN IN THE SECOND PHOTO. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.

Winter shipping has begun… as a heartfelt thank you, this year we are including free winter protection (thermal insulation liners every time and heat packs as necessary) in each box. *Free winter protection only available through website orders, not our Etsy shop
