G'morning sharkxing

I have never seen this asterias cultivar.
There is a similar one but it is myriostigma cultivar.
It seems this cultivar can not make a flower. How do you propagate this plant?

"hikaryoko" is not Japanese or does not make sense as a Japanese.
Where is the origin of this cultivar?

I wanted to greet fellow collectors, and the opportunity to try to clarify, this plant has been imported from Japan by me with the name of Ikari-YOKO, in 2008 I have reproduced below the plant mirtillocactus of grafts, as seen from picture when I received the plants were grafted again on blueberry, strange thing for Japan, if you see the photo you see 3 plants that show the shape koh-yo,
in the second photo you can see a tree that I played, let's call it green and in the third photo shows a plant koh-yo, this after many selections are able to

i didn't get it....

are those all clones of the same plant or is it a real cultivar, viable and stable?

good looking plants.. but i like the most the viable ones.. more surprises with seeds... ;D

Both of names hikaryoko and Ikari-YOKO did not make sence as Japanese words and I sent an e-mail to a Japanese cactus nursery.
I referred the photo on the top of this topic (sharkxing's photo).
Mr Saeki of Aisen-en has replied to my e-mail. Aisen-en exports special Japanese Astrophytum cultivars to overseas.
His comment is:
The original plant came from China.
To create this monstrosa, a chemical, BA liquid was used. (he assume)
It is called "Goku"in Japan.
He is not sure Why this plant is named hikaryoko or Ikari-YOKO.

Goku is the name of monkey in the story of Monkey Magic.
He can make thousands of his clones in a moment from his hair by magic.

Wow! thanks Frank! happy to know with certainty the true name of this plant! and thank you for contacting an authority as Mr. Saeki. in Italy Goku is the name of the protagonist of the series of Japanese manga Dragon ball ;) ;D
