this cactus doesn’t have any prickly spikes! The flowers are very beautiful and really does look like a starfish. This is also called a Carrion plant, because the flowers smell like rotten meat. It is best to let it bloom while outdoors. The plant is very easy to grow. Propagates easily from cuttings!
