Turbinicarpus

Recommended Posts

I just got a few Turbinicarpus specimens... they are really cool cacti.

I was wondering what type of Turbinicarpus cacti people have in cultivation and I'd like to see some pics if anybody has any...

Mine is Turbinicarpus lausseri (= Turbinicarpus pseudomacrochele var. lausseri) ~ 1.5"+ plant 9-10 years old.

That T. jauernigii looks like a Lophophora cactus kinda.

Wow - the T. jauernigii really should have been called 'T. lophophoroides'! So similar to a Lophie! :drool2:

Edit: Not to confuse, I meant it looks so much like a loph that 'lophophoroides' would have been a more suitable name. I was not pointing out a mistaken ID - they are probably indeed what Zelly had labelled them. :)

Battaia & Zanovello named it Turbinicarpus lophophoroides subsp. jauernigii in 1995... problem is G. Frank already named it T. jauernigii in 1993.

Awesome plant zelly.

Turbinicarpus is certainly a confusing genus, but it is also most interesting!

Cannaboiler, check out the links in post #9, those are Lophophora-like cacti... they are in an aggregate of Turbinicarpus called "Lophophoriods" which includes the species/sub-species/forms/variations/strains of hoferi, jauernigii, laui, lophophoroides and swobodae, check all these out.

Hey, how long do tubinicarpus seeds take to germinate? What have been people's experience, if any?

Nice pics Zelly. The flowers look great! It looks like a flower within a flower very nice. Where did you get all these from? did you grow them from seed? They are all big too how old are they?

'Bout the same as Lophophora.

Which takes about 2-4 weeks. I found Lophophora and Turbinicarpus really easy... while cacti like Aztekium and Strombocactus were VERY difficult!

Thanks, and how long is that, since I haven't raised lopho from seed, only some tricho and a couple of succulents?

By the way, forgot to mention... Great pics !!

In my experience with T. lophophoroides germination began at 1 week and was sporadic over the next 3 weeks.
