Welcome To The Turbinicarpus Information Exchange
This site is intended to be a place for Turbophiles to meet and exchange
I have put this site together to help me better understand this wonderful Genus
and as I am not a Turbinicarpus expert I cannot guarantee that the information
it contains is up to date or whether it is accurate. If you see anything that is
obviously inaccurate, if you have anything you think may be of use or see that
something is missing, then please Let Me Know.
This site includes within Turbinicarpus the genera Normanbokea,
Gymnocactus and Rapicactus. But excludes those plants in
Neolloydia in the narrow sense. Information on other "related" genera eg.
Pelecyphora, Encephalocarpus, Epithelantha,
Strombocactus, Ortagocactus and Obregonia may be added in
the future or if I get any requests.
