I bought this poor thing from a shop that barely watered their succulents and then put them out in the direct sun for almost 12-14 hours every day. I had been looking for a star cactus for a while and this little guy came along my path.
Bad part was that it was shriveled and poorly planted. Yes the pot had a drain (most important part), but that drain meant nothing if it wasn’t getting any water. So i ended up purchasing it from that shop with little to no hope for it surviving. Just thought I’d give it a shot.
As soon as I repotted it into some cactus/succulent mix soil and gave it a little bit more room to grow out of the top, it thrived! The bits on the side of it that you see in the photo i have on my profile... those all puffed out and became green and happy! (with the exception of a couple that were dead of course).
If you’re planning on getting one of these, I highly recommend it, but make sure you either know what pot/soil to put it in or that you buy it from someone who knows what they’re doing. Once these things have a good start then they grow like crazy and start to thrive <3
