Lophophora Lucky Dip (Mixed Species & Varieties) | Seeds

Another of our fabulous UK exclusives… this one’s a mystery mix Lophophora Lucky Dip, comprising several different desirable Lophophora species and varieties from Mexico and the USA! Here’s a good and speedy way to expand your Lophophora species collection on a budget…

Lophophora is a genus of small, slow-growing cacti. Dark-green and spineless, these button-like plants are native to Mexico and parts of Texas and central to north-eastern Mexico. Occurring among scrub – especially in limestone habitats, clusters of Lophophora species (for example, Lophophora williamsii – ‘Peyote’) can reach up to roughly fifteen centimetres in height and even metres wide!

Your Lophophora Lucky Dip could include these species/proposed species/varieties (plus others):

  • Lophophora alberto-vojtechii
  • Lophophora diffusa (‘False Peyote’)
  • Lophophora fricii
  • Lophophora koehresii
  • Lophophora williamsii (‘Peyote’, ‘Peyōtl’)
  • Lophophora williamsii var. caespitosa
  • Lophophora williamsii var. decipiens
  • Lophophora williamsii var. jourdaniana
  • Lophophora williamsii var. pentagona
  • Lophophora williamsii var. texana

Easy but a little slow to cultivate from seed. Go very easy on the water (the various species are all quite drought-tolerant) and give them some full sun to partial shade and you should end up with some cute one-centimetre-ish plants within six months to a year…

All the seed sold by Arkham’s Botanical was freshly and ethically sourced in 2018-2019

  1. Chris

    Normally i like to label what my lophs are, but the fun in growing something that could be anything loph is fun plus i wanted to mix up the genes a bit.
    My first batch got killed off by some insect but 5 out of 25 seeds grew.
    My second batch are doing well, again about 5-6 out of 25 alive and stable which is normal germination rates for me unless i inspect each seed and only sow the most mature ones.
    Other growers have much higher rates than me so don’t be put off by what i say, plus i think i got a yellow loph in there this time 🙂

      Hi Chris, thanks for the detailed report – jealous of your apparently variegated seedling too! How are you germinating your seeds? Try the ‘Takeaway Tek’ (in our Cultivation section) if you’ve not already, as we get a fairly-high germination rate with this species via this route… 😉 Cheers!
