Lophophora Variety Mix Cactus Seeds
Lophophora Variety Cactus Seeds
These seeds are randomly mixed together when collected. The seeds can be any quantity of the following varieties.
Lophophora Williamsii - Lophophora Williamsii is a small cactus native to Mexico, Texas and New Mexico. It will grow to a pale green/blue cactus with a globular shape with pink/white flowers. Normally the epidermis is covered by both cuticle and wax; the latter substance is primarily responsible for the blue-green or glaucous coloration of L. williamsii. Williamsii can grow ribs in well-defined lines,in williamsii they are usually present. Stems globose to flattened, somewhat firm to the touch, blue-green or occasionally reddish green.
Lophophora Williamsii var. Caespitosa - comes from the region of La Perdida, Mexico. It is a variety of Lophophora that grows in a cluster with multiple heads. It is a button-like, spineless cactus. It has a dark green or light green colour.
Lophophora Diffusa - tends to be lighter colored and rounder, flowers are usually white,
Diffusa appear more rounded because of their diffused ribs, meaning there is little depression between the ribs. The ribs are even less pronounced when older if not entirely absent. Stems are soft, somewhat globose, yellow-green.
Lophophora Fricii - In habitat Lophophora fricii is a very mutable species. It´s hardly to find two similar plants at one location. Particularly in terms of the bloom they are different at the same locations. Flowers are commonly pale to dark pink.It is described as differing from Lophophora williamsii in having yellowish-grey-green epidermis, a different arrangement of ribs (usually lacking well defined ribs), and seeds with a coarse testa and a compressed V-shaped hilum. Typically the flowers are carmine-red, but as demonstrated by observing plants in habitat, the colour can be much lighter than that indicated in the description. The flower color of Lophophora varies from deep reddish-pink to nearly pure white; those of L. diffusa rarely exhibit any red pigmentation, making them usually appear white or sometimes a light yellow because of the reflection of yellow pollen from the center of the flower.
Please note these are general descriptions of wild specimens and are by no means definitive, there is a large variation even among the same species. It is possible to have a Diffusa looking Williamsii and vice-a-versa.
