Very nice healthy looking Williamsii with a light green color, cm big.

Lophophora Williamsii is a button-like spineless cactus native to Mexico and southern North America. Native North Americans are likely to have used it for spiritual purposes for at least 5,500 years. It has a blue-green or yellow-green color and tufts of white hairs and it grows very slow. Its common name Peyote comes from the Nahuatl name peyōtl, said to be derived from a root meaning “glisten” or “glistening”. Other sources translate the Nahuatl word as “Divine Messenger”.

We will send these Lophophora Williamsii cacti bare rooted. Please contact us before placing your order if you want it shipped in its pot, although this may affect the shipping price. However, from experience we have learned that shipping plants bare rooted is the best way to make sure plants arrives intact.

Plant your cactus in a tall pot with holes in the bottom for good drainage. You should use a pot that is not too big because it can cause rot on the roots, although big enough to give the roots enough room. Use a soil mix of cactus soil, sandstone gravel and a dash of perlite. Give it water every two weeks in the summer. Make sure that it drys out properly in between waterings. However, you should not water the cactus at all in the winter. This can cause the cactus to rot or grow etiolated.

Place your cactus in a bright place. This plant works fine to grow on a windowsill, just make sure it gets enough light every day. Insufficient light will result in a narrow and elongated growth from the tip while too much direct light (especially noonday direct sun) may result in a burning of the new growth. 5 hours of direct sunlight and several hours of bright indirect light seems to work the best.

When costumers purchase more than one plant from us that looks similar we always mark the plants with their name. If you don’t want that please let us know.
