Lophophora williamsii cactus care

Peyote like light and warm environment. In its natural habitat it grows under direct sun, or under a bush or near other cactus. It likes company, and it usually found in clusters. Indoor, a southern facing window is great and it can do very well under a lamp.
A limestone stone is necessary with a ph little basic, good drainage and aeration is a must. You can use those ingredients to make a good soil: sharp sand, limestone gravel, belonite clay, perlite and thin ground.

Watering is really important, and the most common mistake is to overwater them. Wait that your soil is totally dry before you give them water.

You have to adapt what is in your soil according to your climate, humidity...

Cacti are used to dry conditions and therefore should never be given too much
water. The best time to water the Peyote cactus is in spring, and you can keep
watering them until autumn. When it is really hot, you should water them more

In winter you shouldn't watering much, especially when kept cactii outdoors, because
the cold combined with the water will damage the Peyote. Only give a little water
in the winter to prevent the cactus from completely drying out.

Peyote cacti are growing actively in the period from spring to fall. In this period
they need the most water and nutrients. For nutrients use special cactus nutrients
and always be very careful no give them too much. Good cactus nutrition is
always low in nitrogen and high in potassium and Phosphor. These are indicated
by numbers at the label of the bottle in a NPK value. A good NPK value for cacti
would be 4-7-7 or even 2-7-7.

A good way to water the Peyote is to “bottom” water. Just put them in the sink
with a small amount of water for a few minutes. The “bottom” watering method
will assure strong roots because the roots have to reach out for the water.
Although this is a good way to water them, it’s also possible to occasionally water
them from above.
