20 Years ago we got three seeds of a peyote cactus. All three are growing slowly but nicely. And what’s more: they are flowering and producing seeds.
In 1996 I was for business in Texas. And I loved it!!! Being in a relative conservative part of the Americas I was amazed by the number of peyote cacti on the window sills. I was wondering if the owners knew that the peyote contains mescaline (a drug causing hallucinations) and that the peyote is used by shamans; traditional only the shaman may use it to ‘enhance his visionary talents’.
Anyway I collected some seeds and here you see a 26 year old peyote making a flower.
