Lophophora williamsii (Peyote) is a native of Mexico and the southern United States, which means it prefers hot, dry environments. Peyote grows well on mineral-rich soil. The optimal growth medium for these sorts of unusual cacti is a mixture of 50% sand, 25% grit or bims, and 25% standard potting soil.
Grow lophophora williamsii seeds at a minimum temperature of 10 oC with enough direct sunshine, and your Peyote cactus will thrive. Peyote will mature into a light green spherical cactus with pink or white blooms.

Cultivation of Peyote
Plant the lophophora williamsii seeds between September and April. Spread the seeds out on the ground and cover with a thin layer of dirt. Water until the seeds germinate and keep the soil moist. The seeds will germinate in a week; do not overwater, or the roots will rot.
The Peytote requires a lot of heat and light, but not direct sunlight. Temperatures range from 20 to 30 degrees Celsius. It requires a dry climate and little upkeep. After a few years, the peyote will reach a height of 10-15 cm.
Taking care of them
Peyote needs only a few drops of water every two to three weeks. In the winter (December to februari) they need no water at all and no artificial light either. They will not grow in this period anyway.
Use of Peyote
Peyote buds may be consumed and chewed slowly. This is difficult since peyote has a very harsh taste. Another option is to chop them up and mix them with grapefruit juice. Another option is to dry them and crush them into powder. This powder is then encapsulated using a capsule machine.
It is usually difficult to dose the fresh buttons accurately since the active component amount varies from cactus to cactus. Never press all of the buttons at once. Take the first few cactus and wait at least 45 minutes before taking another. Before consuming or preparing cactus, always remove the white fluff. The fluff is poisonous and may cause throat irritation.
The journey might span anything from 5 to 24 hours. As a result, it is critical to keep the day and the following day free of appointments. The effects are best felt in settings where there are no objects blocking the view. As a result, the beach, broad fields, and plains are the finest habitats. In contrast to mushrooms, the forest is not the best area to find them.
