A patch of variegated A. asterias seedling (own-rooted plants, 3 yo). They grow slowly - but steadily...

Some pictures from my collection:

Beautiful! Do you think they have some senile genes?

I have tons of variegated asterias from seed going. I ordered some seeds from china and got nearly 100% germination and 75% highly variegated seedlings.  Here's one of them.  It seems to have spines which confuses me. It is the only one big enough to show some character so I am only posting a picture of this one.  It was a pure white seedling.  There were many green/white/yellow/pink seedlings.  I tried grafting all the pure white ones first though.  I also have a bunch of myriostigma kikko variegates, kikko koh-yo, and MY x OR variegates growing.  Will be posting more pictures when they're larger.

This is a good result, you can give me the address where you ordered these seeds?
