This spring was wet and cool but it was hot yesterday. The maximum temperature was over 30 'C.
My asterias were in flower. The photo is 4 ~6 years old seedlings, mainly super kabuto.

Really nice Hanazono, I had a heap of flowers yesterday and think today will be much the same Smile I made a few interesting cross pollinations too.

beautiful hanazono

just a taste of adelaide summer... i forgot to turn my homebrew heatpad that i use to keep my babies warm off A hot day in SA Icon_redface they were cooking by the time i got home from work!!! but funnily enough i had some good germination especially on mammilaria boolii and some echinocactus grusonii that had been in a baggie for a month with no germination at all. also gymnocalcium baldinum had a second wave of germination with four extra seedlings 2 weeks after the first 6 came up.

love your work!!!

It was another hot day yesterday.
My grafted asterias cv hanzono kabuto opened 14 flowers together.
14 flowers are not record in my green house but it is surely many flowers.
The name of hanazono means "flower garden".

Wow, I've never seen so many flowers on one plant. How old is that one and how big in diameter is it? It is hard to tell from the picture.

The diameter of the plant is a bit more 11 cm. I sowed seeds in 2003 and did seedling grafting. One of grafted seedling showed a strong Hanazono character. I took one of pups from the grafted seedling and grafted it in 2004.
Can I say it is 5 years old?
Cv hanazono is a small asterias. It will be grown by 7~8 cm with own root but this plant has been grown more because of grafted.

Bobblybook
The tufts are areoles. Cv Hanazono will get many areoles over the body when the plant was matured. You can not see tufts on young plants. Cactus flowers will come out from areoles and so cv Hanazono can make flowers as same as numbers of tufts potentially. The record in my greenhouse is 20 flowers.

The Hanazono is just gorgeous, certainly lives up to its name of flower garden.

Thanks for the info Hanazono, a beautiful plant. Is the stock Harrisia ?

Since I use seedlings as grafting stocks, not from cuttings, it is not true Harrisia.
The stock is a hybrid, Harrisia x Echinopsis.

Spectacular work hanazono. This cv for me, stands out from most of the other Astrophytum hybrids. Especially with the fact it has so many areoles.
I think I want to look at this variety a bit more.

I am away from home this week and I can not take any new photos.
I pick up a photo from my internet album.
This Hanazono kabuto was grown grafted on Hylocereus but did degrafting with a short vascular bandles.
Plant is rely on 3 cm Hyrocereus vascular bandles with roots.

Hanazono,

Could you cross the Harrisia with a Tricho ? They are considered the same under modern nomenclature. It makes me wonder, I should have one of each open this year.

I have not tried Trico yet.
It works Harrisia x Lobiopsis (Lobivia x Echinopsis).
The aim of making the hybrid stock is to get these:
Harrisia: strong roots, farst growing
Echinopsis: early flowering, many flowers

I used simple Trico for grafting stocks and result was:
Scion got poor spines (If you grafted super kabuto, white pattern also will be poor.)
Poor flowering, nornally one flower as same as own root.
Trico can not use for very young seedling graftings, 5~14 days old seedlings.
Although the succsess ratio of normal grafting is very high, I do not use Trico as grafting stocks any more from the above reason.

I have returend to home and took a photo, Hanazono kabuto without flowers.
You can see many flower buds coming from every where but mainly gaps between ribs.
The original Hanazono was a monstrosa but crossed with many other kabutos for improving characters and so it is a cultiva now.
A cultiva, super kabuto x Hanazono kabuto is existing.
Other asterias with special areoles are Oo-ibo, Doughnut-ibo, Hanaizumi etc.

That's another extraordinary plant.

Out of curiousity (and off on a slight tangent), how did you discover Harrisia x Echinopsis as a grafting stock? What made you choose it, and how readily available is it?

Thanks Hanazono. I find it interesting that this trait was originally a monstrose form which has been bread into a cultiva. That would suggest that this particular trait is genetic in comparison to other monstrose traits.

I have to tell more about the stock.
The mother plant is Harrisia SP but it is actually a hybrid, Harrisia x Echinopsis.
No detail information available but supposed made in France, Harrisia bonplandii x an Echinopsis long time ago.
You can not make any fruits when they were crossed, Harrisia SP x Harrisia SP because it was started from just one fruit.
You can only get fruits if you crossed Harrisia SP x an Echinopsis.
I am not sure how I can call the plant name because I repeated to cross Echinopsis many times.
The stock is used commoly in overseas. I have an old book, "Introduction of cactus grafting" issed in 1970, written by Mr. Y. Ito. There is detail descriptions of the stock in the book.

KanJe
You are correct.
