                  The Tahuramaras held the Bishops Cap cactus sacred and regarded it as Peyotillo, or false peyote. This is due to some fascinating phytochemical constituents that it produces. It's closely related to San Pedro, and Saguaro, among others. This is why it has been referred to as a "false peyote".


This attractive Bishops Cap is somewhat resistant to frost and can survive in climates that get down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. During the winter months this cactus does better when kept dry. Fertilization should take place in the spring and summer to keep the cactus growing at a healthy rate. Bishops Cap Cacti are shipped bare root. Make sure you have a prepared cultivation plot ready to go upon arrival.


Bishops Cap cactus ( astrophytum myriostigma ) is very easy to grow just like any other variety. The only thing is that they requires a special growing medium. It's best to go out and buy some organic cacti planting mixture. A typical growing medium for such varieties includes: Canadian Peat Moss, Reed Sedge Peat, Perlite, Sand, & Limestone. Whatever you do don't try to plant them in regular soil.


Cacti such as Bishops cap ( astrophytum myriostigma ) can be thought of as a symbol for protection, strength, and courage. Think about where and how they thrive and survive. They go long periods of time without water while storing it in their sturdy bodies. They have the courage and strength to survive in barren environments. Their spikes protect them from potential predators. Many shamans view them in this fashion as well.
