Plant Care
Planting:
When ripe, sow seeds at 81ºF (27ºC). In early summer, conduct removal of the offsets.

Plant Growth:
Earth stars grow best in partial shade, or bright filtered light, with moderate to high humidity. In areas that are tropical and humid, starfish plants work great in a bed or border. Where temperatures drop under 59-68ºF (15-20ºC), raise plants indoors, as houseplants, in a bottle garden, or in a warm greenhouse. A warm greenhouse has a minimum temperature of 55ºF (13ºC). During the day, temperatures should be set to 55-64ºF (13-18ºC) or above, and at night, the temperature should be at 55ºF (13ºC).

Blooming:
Blooms small, star-shaped flowers in the center of star-like leaf rosettes, in summer.

Soil and Irrigation:
Earth stars grow well in soil that is moist, moderately fertile, acidic, well-draining, and supplemented with fibrous organic material. Terrestrial bromeliad potting mixes work fine for indoor plants. Water moderately during the growing season, and mist with tepid water on a regular basis. Provide less water in winter.

Fertilization:
Needs moderately fertile soil to grow well. Apply a dilute fertilizer on a monthly basis during the growing season.

Pruning:
Pruning is generally not necessary.

Pests:
Earth stars are prone to scale insects and mealybugs.
