very nice Erik, but if I remember well you have other plants from the same fruit that are more green, they should be stronger.
With which cross did you obtain these plant?

Erick, your plant is an Astropyutum hybrid, I think.
Astrophytum hybrid shows various degree of varigation.
My plant is capricorne v niveum x super kabuto.
Normal one

High degree of varigation
