Apr 4, 2008
The star cactus is also referred to as the Sand Dollar Cactus, Sea Urchin Cactus, and Star Peyote Cactus. Usually, the star cactus is a tiny, boneless type of cactus that generally represents the Sand Dollar Cactus, which is one of the primary typical names of the star cactus. The dome shaped globular body of the star cactus is around 2-6 inches in breadth and around 1-2 inches in length. The color of a typical star cactus is brown or light green, along with certain dotted spots because of the layering of small white scales on it. The plant is usually separated into eight triangular portions, in which each core line of the separated portions of globular serrations is occupied with certain whitish wooly tresses.

The blooms of star cactus are somewhat yellowish with certain amount of permutations with orange mid-linings of around 2-3 inches of total diameter. The fruit produced by this cactus is an elliptical shaped, plump berry of around half inch. The fruit that may be of grayish-red, green, or pink color is layered with thick hazy tresses.

Life History and Habitation:

The environmental scientific data of the star cactus lacks lots of concerning issues about its history. It is observed that a typical wild star cactus buds from March through May and gets prepared to reap from April through June. Further, it is also believed that, the star cactus is pollinated by certain bugs, but those precised bugs are yet to be discovered. Examination of the star cactus in its wildest habitat proposes that this cactus needs foster plants for proper nurturing. The favorable nurturing place of a star cactus is semi-secured areas beneath the brushes.

A fractional glooming from the contiguous brush is quite crucial for offering a suitable microclimate for nurturing due to the spineless structure of a star cactus. The most flourishing sprouts of a star cactus are likely to found in a near proximity to rocks, cacti, shrubs, or other trees. Though, the occurrence of a star cactus is frequently observed in open spaces. Very meager vegetated growth of the star cactus is seen in certain rough, brackish soils or mud at low altitudes, usually in the plains of the Rio Grande.

Overview:

Traditionally, the origination of star cactus comes from Hidalgo, and Starr Countries in Southern Texas region, Cameron, Tamaulipas in Mexico, and the border states of Nuevo Leon. At present, the genus of star cactus is familiarized from a single inhabitant each in the Tamaulipas and Starr Country.

This unique genus of the cactus family is hugely charged and the assortment of these wild samples composes a crucial risk to the existence of these unique species. Star cactus can be nurtured from the seed, if provided with the precised soil format.
