Where it grows
This cactus is indigenous to Mexico, specifically near Las Palomas.
Turbinicarpus jauernigii is a solitary, non-branching cactus with a stem surface that has attractive, gray-green geometric shapes. The top of the stem is covered in white ‘hair’.
It produces salmon coloured flowers.
This species of Turbinicarpus prefers full morning sun, or light shade. This is not an easy species to take care of, as it is quite water sensitive and prone to rot. A 1:1:1 mix of Ibaraki Akadama:Hyuga Pumice:Perlite is recommended. It is highly important to only water these plants in spring and summer, as doing so in winter will cause rot.
Spring and summer.

Mammillaria elongata f. cristata, otherwise known as the 'brains cactus'. Brains cacti form compact ridges of contorted, overlapping stems which give these plants the appearance of a human brain.
