Lophophora williamsii | ‘Peyote’ | Rooted plant
We are happy to offer limited stocks of these beautiful rooted plants, Lophophora williamsii grown organically from seed in the Spanish sun, without the use of any chemicals or pesticides. Many of these specimens have already flowered and set seed several times too!
Lophophora williamsii is a small, spineless cactus, containing a rich mixture of alkaloids. The English familiar ‘peyote’ derives from the Spanish for this beautiful plant, which itself comes from the Nahuatl ‘peyōtl’ (apparently derived from a root meaning “glisten” or “glistening”). To give you some idea of how slowly the species grows, our three to five centimetre plants are all approximately four years old.
‘Peyote’ is native to Mexico and southwestern Texas, primarily in the Chihuahuan desert, and in the states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosi, and Tamaulipas, growing among scrub (which it uses for shade). Indigenous North Americans are believed to have used peyote for ritualistic practices for over five thousand years.
