really nice plant, but I think you have to keep it in shadow, isn't it?

really nice, but not variegated. that kind of depiction means that it is genetically unstable. a real variegated one is yellow form the apex.

is it a hybrid you did or you bought it? i do have a asterias kikko with the same kind of loss of chlorofill

It is not so important but the name should be "Ayanami".
Ayanomi has another meaning.

Yes I keep it in shadow, takes a bit of direct sunlight only in the morning for about an hour.

Thanks for the explanation, that's right! I have bought and I do not know if it can be a hybrid, was the name on the tag that I wrote but it is likely to be a hybrid at this point? I have a Ariocarpus hybrid that has the same problem with chlorophyll, the growing point is green and the ends turn yellow.

  Thanks Frank, I have just corrected the name on the label, you know how it can be translated into English?

Ayanami is just Japanese name of texensis, which means twilled waves.
I think the plant is not a cultivar, is a monstrosa.
It is a few chance of flowering but the character of monstrosa is transferred through seeds.

Thanks for the explanation very interesting Frank. The plant has never bloomed in two years that I bought it, it is producing suckers that graft to reproduce.
