I couldn’t resist.



This is an Echinopsis lageniformis cactus of the monstrose variety, a plant that flourishes in the high deserts of Bolivia. (“Lageniform” means “bottle-shaped” or “flask-shaped.”) Previously known as Trichocereus bridgesii, the cactus produces a number of psychoactive alkaloids, among them the celebrated hallucinogen: mescaline. This cactus is the most potent mescaline containing cacti known to the Ethnobotanical community. The Echinopsis lageniformis contains approx. 2.5% mescaline by wieght of dried cactus skin. Known as The Penis Plant, the monstrose and cristate mutants of this species are reportedly much more slow-growing than their standard counterparts.
