Lophophora Diagonalis Cacti Seeds

As classified by the late taxonomist Schmoll who recognized this as a unique species. Ultimately classification via the publication of a species is a statement of opinion based on observation. Worthy of the collection.

These fresh Lophophora cactus seeds will grow into a blueish plant with a globular shape. The Lophophora cactus, also known as peyote, is a rare spineless cactus native to Mexico and South Texas.  Lophophora  produces white wool and grows ribs in well-defined lines as it ages, these ribs can be used as an indicator of the plants approximate age. Most plants young plants have 5 ribs, while older specimens can reach up to 13 ribs. It usually grows solitary, but can also grow caespitose. It maintains a large subterranean taproot which acts as a water reservoir during the dry season. It is a very rewarding cactus to grow because of its lack of spines, and once mature it regularly displays beautiful pink flowers throughout the summer months.
