very nice shinshouwa kabutos
Just one plant is remained in my place. Buds come out quite often but is hard to open by unknown reason.

Thank you Frank. We have some own roots plants too, and for them it is quite hard to complete their bloom.
We think own roots plants are quite weak.
Maybe if the plants has a lot of buds, you can remove all and leave only one or two buds.

My plant is actually grafted on a Hylocereus stock. Although the scion becomes large, the stock becomes very weak now.
The flower was opened like this before.

Nice plants! a bit unusual that the plant makes one normal flower and another shinshowa!

@Frank
if the stock, for some reason, dies, you could re-graft on normal asterias. i did it for hanazono, it is easy and effective, you obtain a plant which grows slower, but it seems stable ( my one has 2 years only, but i think the stock will last as much as scion)

G'morning fanecchissimo

I understand you regraft an asterias cultivar scion onto a normal asterias stock.
It is possible but I have never try this way honenstly.
In the case of regrafting, the age and size of scion will affect on the result generally.
For eg my shinshouwa kabuto, grafted on a Hylocereus is 6years and 13 cm diameter.
It is too large to regraft, I think.

I use a large permanet stock for important scions for seeds collection currently.
I use Harrisia Jusbertii, 8 cm diameter and 60 cm height.
The stock life should be longet than the scion.
The normal asterias life is around 20 years and it will be shorter if the plant was grafted.

interesting.

is it frost hardy?
because i only keep plants that can reach 0┬░celsius... it is a great pest control...
every astro i do have resist perfectly.
pereskiopsis velutina does the job, opuntias does the job, tricho does the job... echinopsis are quite unstable like myrtillocactus.
if it is, than i would be interested in knowing where to find it, to give it a try! :)

fanecchissimo harisia is more frost tollerant tam mirtillo for sure and for me it give to the scion a more natural form.

Frank,

if the stock dies and the plant is too big to regraft you can regraft parts of it, cutting the plant into parts with some areoles on each part.
you can see it here:
