Starfish Cactus Bloom Time
On average, you can expect a baby plant to bloom in two years with just one or two flowers. When it is mature, the plant will bloom successively in July to September in North America.
Just so, why is my Sun Star plant dying?
If the soil gets too dry the blooms can wilt and they may not recover. Check the soil moisture with your finger. If the top 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, or plants are wilted, it is time to water.
Subsequently, how big does a starfish cactus get?
These stinky, but spectacular, plants share similar traits to those from the carnivorous family in that they possess insect attracting flora (but are not carnivorous), which range in size from a couple of inches (5 cm.) high to plants that bear 12-inch (30 cm.)

General Care for Haworthia retusa “Star Cactus”
Haworthia retusa “Star Cactus” is a great addition to rock gardens or windowsills. Its green, windowed leaves collect sunlight, much like the windowed leaves of Fenestraria rhopalophylla “Baby Toes”.
Many people remove spent blooms as flowers fade to keep plants healthy and the garden looking its best. If you want to deadhead cactus flowers, wear thick gloves, especially if you have several plants to work with. Long sleeves may be needed sometimes or long pants.
