We recently bought a bunch of succulents but this little star shaped pod was a last minute buy and we forgot to ask what it was called! It was grown in Fillmore, CA.

No Idea…
by: Jacki

Sorry, Rachel, don’t know this one. It’s super cute though!

The only plant that seems to be similar is Euphorbia obesum, which tends towards a much fatter shape that is similar. I wonder if this could be the same plant as a juvenile?

This site has many examples, but none that show the star shape.

Astrophytum Myriostigma
by: Eve

This is Astrophytum Myriostigma. Lovely succulents which will produce yellow flowers. Keep them dry and frost free in Winter. Watch out for mealy bugs though, they can be easy to miss on these plants. Good luck 🙂
