Peyote, scientifically known as Lophophora williamsii, is an unusual and historically important cactus species, famous for its psychoactive properties. Growing Peyote from seeds can be a lengthy and patient process, as this cactus is notoriously slow growing. It can take several years for the cacti to mature enough to be harvested.
The historical significance of Peyote is profound. This cactus is considered one of the oldest known psychedelic plants. The discovery of Peyote cacti in ancient tombs and depictions in caves, dating to around 4,000 B.C., indicates their long-term use by indigenous cultures in the Americas. These finds illustrate how deeply rooted Peyote is in the spiritual and cultural practices of these societies.
Use a grow box. Fill plastic containers (5 cm) with sterilized soil, place the seeds on the soil and press gently. Place the trays in a layer of boiled water and wait for the soil to become moist on the surface. Remove the jars and cover them with plastic wrap. Optimal temperature at this stage is between 18°C and 23°C. After a few days to weeks, green baby cacti will emerge. After about 4 weeks, you can start hardening off. Pierce 2 holes in the foil and then every other day. You can remove the plastic if there is as much atmosphere under the foil as outside it. Water with boiled water or rainwater. Don’t let them dry out, but don’t overwater either. After a year you can repot them if necessary, be very careful with the pen root. If the cacti turn yellow they need more light, if they turn red they need less water.
