Promising youngsters indeed! Your palnts are more white and nicer than mine ones. From your own seeds if I understood aright, yes?
This is what I've got from the seeds of A. coahuilense 'tricostatum', bought from Malta. Not a single plant with three ribs - most are kikkos, a couple of 4-ribbed plants and a couple of five-ribbed ones...





Grafted onto the Selenicereus hybr. stock at the end of September, the plants are 2...3 cm in diameter now.

yours are super nice too! 3 ribs coah are more difficult to obtain :)
will try next year. I think the fact they are more white depens on how much light they get...if next year you put in full sun they should become more white.

According to my experience - yes! This time, I got from 20 seeds 12 seedlings - and 7 of them are Kikkos!  :o From the remaing 5 two were initially 5-ribbed and three four-ribbed. Now, a couple of plants are loosing by one rib, so I may get a three-ribbed A. coahuilense finally indeed. Let's see...
EDIT: To make things clearer - the seeds were labeled as 'Astrophytum coahuilense v. tricostatum'

They are all very nice everyone. Robin yours look very good, thin and pointy, disappointing not to get the trico you were after but very good plants any way. From seed you can have good luck and bad.... I had some good luck! Very happy to see this orange one, and it grows well too!

Graft on stocks that have not been watered for a couple of weeks or do early in the growing season ;).

Yes we solved that problem with harrisia, thanks!
Btw it seems only coahuilense scions do that on selenicereus winter grafts (under lamps).
