Lophophora williamsii ‘Texana’ | ‘Peyote’ | 25 seeds

Lophophora williamsii ‘Texana’ (aka Lophophora williamsii ‘Texensis’) is a particularly prolific and hardy ‘Peyote’ variety which originates from the region around the Rio Grande in Texas. We’re pleased to be able to offer this seed as another of our UK exclusives!

Lophophora williamsii is a deep to dark-green cactus species, small and spineless and native to Mexico and south-western Texas. It’s found primarily in the Chihuahuan desert and in the states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas, where it grows to approximately fifteen centimetres tall. Williamsii is drought-tolerant and prefers full sun to partial shade, in wild scrub and limestone.

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 humans, notably being used medicinally and ritualistically by indigenous Americans, who are collectively thought to have used this cactus for ceremonial purposes for at least five and a half thousand years.

    Germinated 9/10/19- first seed popped in 4 days. Had 18/25 total until today when I noticed a 19th buried a bit deeper. My best rate yet!

  2. Jesse

    Nearly wiped out in it’s natural habitat, you should probably buy this one first. I love it’s wild furry mane.

  4. Anonymous

    Currently endangered and difficult to source, we must propagate our national heritage!
