G'morning Erick

I am talking about the diameter of tubercles, especially top area of the plant.
There is no definition.
Japanese cactus nurseries are selling asterias with more than 10 mm daimeter tubercles as Ooibo kabuto.

Carlo and Daniele

I think your plant is Bonbori ruri kabuto.
The base is ruri kabuto, not normal v nudum.
Bonbori is a Asian style lantern.
People believe tubecles reach 12mm diameter but the plant body will be kept small.

Hello Mario, nice plant. But for sure is not asterias pure, you can see it from the shape of the ribs.
