Turbinicarpus pseudomacrochele

Turbinicarpus is the genus of many small plants, favored among hobbyists. Plants are blooming reliably from 2 years of age if not younger, and very non-demanding in care. Flowers are often pink, but also white and yellow.
Note the very different adult and juvenile spines on the main plant stem and on the offsets at the picture bottom. Not all but many cacti have such differentiation in spines.
