Every species in the genus Turbinicarpus can be considered choice and sought after by collectors. All are slow growing miniatures, though clumps are seen - but not often sold - they are rarely more than a few inches across. All species produce a succession of their smallish pink, cream or yellow flowers even when quite small. To give a sense of scale, the largest pots in the photograph are only 70mm (2.75") square. Care is required in cultivation, though generally they are not too difficult to keep - just slow!
