Peyote button (Lophophora williamsii) is the sacred cactus of the Native American Church. The green parts of the Peyote cactus are harvested for their mescaline, which is a potent entheogen. These specimens of Peyote cacti are for growing indoors.
Beautiful Lophophora williamsii (Peyote) clusters, also called Lophophora williamsii v. caespitosa. They are regular Lophophora williamsii plants but differ in the fact that they sprout alot. You can form very big clusters over time.
This small, round cactus with fuzz (no spines) hardly rises an inch above the soilês surface when growing, with the largest part being underground (like a carrot). The part that you do see above ground are called peyote buttons and these are what people covet, as they are generally consumed either fresh or dried. Why eat this cactus? You probably already know (thatês why youêre here). Regardless, Peyote actually produces up to 50 different alkaloids that generate different physical and psychological effects. The most known, and prevalent, of these alkaloids is mescaline...
These Peyote cacti should be grown for a couple of years before their green buttons can be harvested (which can be done without killing the cactus itself).
