    It seems that one of the biggest nurseries puts out a few really great Trich.
    cacti that are unamed. If you can i.d. it, buy it! The new San Pedro book is
    excellent in Trich. i.d. The spines and even more the flowers are helpful in
    the i.d. of this very confusing genus.

    Stenocereus Hystrix is for sale at several ethnobotanical stores. Here is some info on it:

    This is a truly unique cactus as it is the only species that is known from outside Southern America and Mexico to contain similar alkaloids to Lophophora williamsii and Trichocereus Peruvianus! Actually chemically it is extremely similar to Lophophora williamsii. This species is found in the West Indies and could be used in places where Peyote ceremonies can be legally conduced if Peyote was not available or as alternative more economical entheogen. It has indeed been analyzed via HPLC, GC/MS and TLC. All reports are conclusive and active in the desired alkaloids. Truly, a very special cactus.


    Does anyone have experience with it yet?
