Turbinicarpus pseudomacrochele is a species of small, globular cactus native to Mexico. It belongs to the genus Turbinicarpus, which is known for its diverse and often visually striking cactus species. The specific epithet "pseudomacrochele" refers to the resemblance of this cactus to another species called Turbinicarpus macrochele.

Turbinicarpus pseudomacrochele typically forms small solitary or clustering globular stems that can reach a diameter of around 3 to 4 centimeters. The stems have distinctive tubercles or rounded protrusions that are covered in dense spines. The spines are usually short and can vary in color, ranging from yellowish to reddish-brown or black.

This species is known for its beautiful flowers, which are relatively large compared to the size of the plant. The flowers appear at the apex of the stem and come in a variety of colors, including pink, purple, white, or yellow. They have a bell-shaped or funnel-shaped structure and are often adorned with contrasting markings or striations, adding to their visual appeal.

Turbinicarpus pseudomacrochele, like other cacti, is adapted to arid conditions and requires well-draining soil to prevent root rot. It thrives in bright sunlight and can tolerate high temperatures, but it may benefit from some shade during the hottest part of the day in extremely hot climates. It is important to protect the cactus from excessive moisture, as it is susceptible to rotting if overwatered.

Turbinicarpus pseudomacrochele is a slow-growing cacti that requires patience and attention to its specific care needs. It is often cultivated by cactus enthusiasts and collectors who appreciate its unique appearance and flowering capabilities.
