Special features

This species of Lophophora closely resembles Lophophora williamsii, but differs in that the ribs tend to form quite attractive geometric shapes. It is considered by some to be a subvariety of Lophophora williamsii, or a hybrid of Lophophora williamsii and Lophophora fricii. It has attractive light pink flowers in late summer.

Care guide 

This cactus should be kept under at least 40% shade cloth to avoid sunburn. They have incredibly large and thick taproots, and should be planted in a deep pot with gritty soil to accommodate these roots. Water them well during the summer months, but keep utterly dry during the colder times of the year, as they require a rest period to flower. If you want to encourage the formation of more white hair on the stem, only water from the bottom.

Growing season

Spring and summer.

Propagation
