Thank You! Now I know why the common name is Starfish cactus! I hope my plant get flower! Looks like the plant needs to be big before buds form! Smiling

Its a big plant. Another common name is Carion plant. Good luck with that... Smiling

A spot with some direct sun should get it growing & blooming as quickly as possible. Very similar care needs to holiday cacti.

This was from a few years back. Had a little different twist to it. It was on my front porch and had little if any direct sunlight.

On the front porch in the shade outside is probably brighter than most spots inside except right next to an E/S/W window. Very nice, Gary!
