Turbinicarpus alonsoi (Photo by Johann Espiritu; plant in the collection of Kevin Belmonte)
From Guanajuato, Mexico. First described in 1996 and named after its discover, a Mexican boy named Alonso. It is one of the most beautiful and distinct members of the Genus Turbinicarpus, a group of rare and small sized, globular cacti with spines which are usually papery, hairy or feathery and found only in Mexico. The plants have beautiful flowers. T. alonsoi is solitary, possesses a large tap root, is globose greyish-green or glaucous with a flattened top. In the wild, it grows partly underground, and attains a size of up to 4.4 inches long (11cm), 2.4 to 3.6 inches in diameter (6 to 9cm). The spines are weak and generally falloff from the older tubercles of the plant. T. alonsoi generally flowers from March to October, mainly between April and June. The flowers are cherry red to pink-magenta, with a more intensely coloured mid-stripe.
