I never seem to see this variety in flower.
Do they flower - in which case I would love some seeds to experiment crossing with the L. williamsii type?
Nice plant badger.


Images on a google search would suggest they do.

I got some caespitosa seeds started recently that are supposed to be a local type of L. williamsii from La Perdida. Also:

It is not a rare event to find a caespitose seedling in the seedling tray among the more common single headed plants. Some of the caespitose clones produce dozens (or hundreds) of very small shoots each of them never reach the dimension of a flowering plant, thus they are sterile and can be reproduced exclusively by cuttings. Other clones have bigger heads and can produce flowers and seeds.

Yes the type with large heads do flower (I have heard you can get sterile types also), Mine puts out many blooms over the summer months and freely produces fertile seeds.
In 2010 I cross pollinated some L.Williamsii flowers with L.W Caespitosa pollen (and vice versa) and successfully produced seed, The seed was given away to friends so I'm waiting to hear back on how the little guys are turning out.

Probably similar to regular Lophophora Williamsii, although I've never eaten one myself (I get too attached to lophs.:))

im not sure the cactus community has evolved to the point,
of quantify-ing various substrains like greens.
