Lophophora williamsii ‘Estancia Catorce’ | ‘Peyote’, ‘Peyōtl’ | 25 seeds

‘Estancia Catorce’ is a locality variety of the marvellous Lophophora williamsii (commonly called ‘Peyote’), which was originally collected from around the Estancia Catorce, in the small Mexican village of Real de Catorce/Real. Real is situated in San Luis Potosí state, at an altitude of approximately 2,728 metres above sea level. Known for its history of rich silver mines, the town is historically and presently a sacred pilgrimage site for Catholics and Huichol shamans. This great seed is another of our popular UK exclusives!

Lophophora williamsii is a small dark-green and spineless cactus, native to Mexico and south-western Texas and found primarily in the Chihuahuan desert and in the states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas among scrub – especially where there is limestone. Growing to around fifteen centimetres high, williamsii is drought-tolerant and prefers full sun to partial shade.

The English name ‘Peyote’ derives from the identically-spelled Spanish name, which in turn comes from the Nahuatl name ‘Peyōtl’, said to be derived from a root meaning “glisten” or “glistening”. The species has enjoyed a long relationship with human and has a history of ritualistic and medicinal use by indigenous Americans, who are likely to have used the plant for ceremonial purposes for at least five and a half thousand years.
