Star Cactus Blossom

Today, my Star Cactus (five ribs, shape of a star) Astrophytum Asterias is blossoming!! I’m very excited when every time I get to see my Star Cactus flowers. The colour of the flowers is white to yellowish. When you look at it, you will see a star, and suddenly on top of the star, there is a flower. Pretty isn’t it? Star Cactus flower is only blooming in the daytime. I have planted this cactus for seven years now, and it is still my favourite. I like stars very much, perhaps that the reason why I have never get bored of my dear Star Cactus.
