Peyote Cactus (Lophophora Williamsii) 1 - 2cm
Contents: One Peyote cactus in soil.
Peyote (Lophophora williamsii) is the sacred cactus of the Native American Church. The green parts are harvested for their mescaline, a potent entheogen. These specimens are for growing indoors.
* mescaline (3,4,5- trimethoxy-B-phenethylamine)
The roots of these cacti have been established for some years, and it is key to not overwater them. Only water the plants occasionally as they naturally go for long times without water. Do not water the Peyote from mid-autumn untill the end of winter because root rot may occur. During the first watering of the year, you may have to soak the pots in a bucket as extremely dry soil has trouble taking up water.
Peyotes like a lot of sun light and warmth, and it would be best to place them in a south facing window. Another possibility is to put them in a greenhouse. They can withstand temperatures of 4 - 50 degrees Celcius.
Every two years add a layer of fresh soil or a cactus-specific fertiliser. Always try fertiliser at half the recommended dosage. Peyote can swell and burst if over fertilized. This doesn't kill the plant but can slow growth while the wound heals.
When the cactus gets wider than it's pot, re-pot it in a pot that is a few centimeters wider than the cactus.
Growing a Peyote cactus is a very slow process.
