Turbinicarpus hoferi

Today I received another plant, Turbinicarpus hoferi. I’m building up quite a nice little collection of this genus now, and find myself appreciating them more and more ever since my decision this year to trust my abilities as a grower.

According to Wikipedia the plant is on the critically endangered species list, though I assume that applies to its existence in its natural habitat, rather than in cultivation. It’s reassuring to know this one was propagated from seed within a collection.
