Lophophora williamsii ‘San Tiburcio‘ | ‘Peyote’, ‘Peyōtl’ | 25 seeds
Lophophora williamsii ‘San Tiburcio’ is an excellent ‘Peyote’ locality variety, originating from near the small (~500 inhabitants) town of San Tiburcio, in Zacatecas state, Mexico. Collected at an altitude of approximately 1,889 metres above sea level, this great seed is another of our UK exclusives!
Lophophora williamsii is a small dark-green and spineless cactus, native to Mexico and southwestern Texas and found primarily in the Chihuahuan desert and in the states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas and Zacatecas among scrub – especially where there is limestone. Growing to roughly fifteen centimetres tall, 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.
