Alps superkabuto
« on: Sunday, 20 November 2011 - 16:08:03 »
one plant from our collection:



we crossed it with other asterias cv and the seeds are in the propagator now.
do you have experience with this cultivar?
Is it better to cross it with which plant to get the best result?

thanks

Use the Alps super kabuto as father plant and cross to large flecking super kabuto If you have only one Alps.

we crossed it with snow kabuto and V-type, but using alps as motherplant.
thanks for the tip Frank, we will adopt it for next season!

We usually saw starshape white forms sold as 'Alps' and only white forms as 'Snow', but also other forms sold as 'snow starshape'...
so we are not very sure about the name, let's wait if someone else has info.
Great plant by the way! Did you get nice seedlings from it?

 This plant at me 5 years. First two years it did not blossom in general. Last three years this plant has sterile flowers. On it never was seeds, but its pollen I pollinated a considerable quantity good Supercabuto. I already have a quantity perspective young Kabuto.
