Here are some photos from 2015

One of my favorites
T. hoferi
They are hard to grow from seed, they start off as very small seedlings compared to the other species.
I grafted a couple onto pereskiopsis first, then larger stock.

Turbinicarpus pseudopectinatus
I grown many of these, some with purple flowers, some that are much slower or easy to kill
but this form has been a steady grower and seemingly hardy
the flowers are the bland color unfortunately.

Turbinicarpus pseudopectinatus v. inermis
I've never been able to keep one these on there own roots
I have several, I like this photo because of the flower cluster
One of my bigger ones has some new heads, I will try again to root one.

If your cacti mess in your job just forget about the job.

If you include Rapicactus in Turbinicarpus there is a good article in the latest issue of the Free downloadable Essex Succulent Review:-

I bought seeds of several Turbinicarpus species, 10 seeds each and sowed in 2006.
All of them were very similar but I think the 1st photo is T. rioverdensis.

2nd phot is a Turbinicarpus hybrid, T. alonsoi x Strombocactus disciformis.

Beautiful plants!! I have some Turbinicarpus seedlings, but they seem to grow exceptionally slow for me (maybe lacking heat).
Growing mostly under LED lights, in northern latitudes. Especially interested in stem succulents and caudiciforms. Dreaming of my first greenhouse.

Here is my contribution. Turbis are slow growers for me too, even with all the heat we have here. But they bloom since very young.
