Turbinicarpus

 

The genus name "Turbinicarpus" comes from the Latine for "fruits shaped like a top". This genus contains mostly dwarf species that flower in abundance
These species grow very slowly, and their success among the hobbyist has threatened them in the wild because of illegal collections on their populations that are very often covering very limited areas.
They are propagated mostly from seeds. Nurseries often graft them in order to increase the growing speed.
