lophophora.info by Gerhard Köhres

I've posted on Gerhard Köhres's Lophophora information site before, but thought it worth mentioning again.

The site is packed with photos of Lophophora plants growing in habitat (see the samples included below) and constitutes the most comprehensive pictorial documentation of the genus that I'm aware of. The pictures are ordered by state and location and can be found at http://lophophora.info/.

  1. I need to know if there are Lophophora williamsii species with thorns? I have several apperantly real peyote cactus but really ask myself if they are, since I have always heard there are only thorns in when they are very young. Mine are 3-7 cm wide.

  2. The only Lophophora variety that I know of having (very small) persistent spines after the seedling stage is Lophophora williamsii v. jourdaniana. How large are the spines on your plants? If you have any pictures I would love to see them (you can use this form for getting in email contact).
