Special features

Lophophora williamsii v. caespitosa, commonly known as the peyote, is a globose gray-green cactus divided into 5-6 hemispheres. They are thornless and have minute white tufts on the areoles. This variety of Lophophora williamsii offsets profusely and can produce large clusters of hundreds of individual heads if it gets old enough. Produces light pink flowers.

Care guide

Give them plenty of light. Ideally, Lophophora should be kept under 40% shade cloth. They need an exceptionally well draining, gritty soil mix as they are highly sensitive to overwatering. Do not water in winter, as this is their dormant season. Only water during the warmer months of the year. Take care not to water on top of the cluster, as water that gets stuck between the individual heads will cause stem rot.

Growing season

Spring and summer.

Propagation
