There is much mystery surrounding this cactus, as it has never been found in the wild. Its origins are uncertain and it is believed it was produced in a nursery at some point..
Some people suppose Lophophora jourdaniana may perhaps be an hybrid between Lophophora williamsii and Lophophora fricii. Furthermore L. jourdaniana is called Lophophora williamsii var. jourdaniana by some other people. These same people labels Lophophora fricii as Lophophora williamsii var. fricii. This is incorrect because Lophophora fricii is not a variation of Lophophora williamsii, and also the breading of the two different species seems impossible, in fact the flowers are frequently cleistogame. It is not possible to fertilize Lophophora jourdaniana with the pollen of Lophophora williamsii, nor with the pollen of Lophophora diffusa and Lophophora fricii. This further clouds the true origins of the spectacular cactus.
The flower colour is a beautiful rose-violet and among the most showy of the Lophophoras.
