Lophophora williamsii ‘Shafter’ | ‘Peyote’, ‘Peyōtl’ | 25 seeds

Lophophora williamsii ‘Shafter’ is a nice ‘Peyote’ variety collected from the ghost town of Shafter, in western Texas. We’ve highly limited stocks available of this excellent seed, which 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 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.

  1. William O.

    My first time to grow these and they have been a pleasure- seedlings seem large for their “age”. Germination rate greater than 80%

  2. Kieran

    Great service, will use again.

  3. Dave

    Cannot as yet comment on germination rates/the locality but certainly looking forward to cultivating these fascinating plants

    • Arkham’s

      These have been particularly viable for us so far – good luck!

  4. chris.flay

    Great germination rates, half the seeds sprouted in less than a week, the others seem to popping up here and there over time, all look stable and happy.

    Usual great service from Arkhams, quick delivery, packed well.
