Three examples of intergeneric hybridization of Turbinicarpus plants.

Here the cross pollination between Pelecyphora pseudopectinata var. rubriflora and more species of genus Turbinicarpus will be used to show the intergeneric pollination technique. In addition to the cut-style technique, the application of stigma exudate is used to make crossbreeding more successful.
