What is the cultural value of this Cactus? It was prized by certain Native American tribes and used ceremonially. Its very similar to Peyote or San Pedro in a chemical sense. This is also where it got the nick-name "False Peyote". It's mentioned in the book "Psychoactive Cacti". It's very popular amongst collectors. There are so many varieties of Trichocereus that it's almost unbelievable. A lot of them are legal to posess, grow, buy, sell, even though they too are active. There are certain religious laws regarding the entheogenic use of such species, but it's up to you to do the research on the laws.


It requires very little watering ( obviously being a cacti ). It's one of the easiest varities there is to grow. You'll want a specialty pre-made organic soil mixture designed specifically for cactus. Make sure you thoroughly plan out your grow plans before you begin. It does require adequate lighting and a loose sandy soil with no drainage problems. On their own, Living Rock could take at least a decade to reach maturity. It blooms a beautiful pink flower at the top. If you want to make your own cultivation medium, you can actually take three ingredients which are: sand, perlite, and regular potting soil, and mix them together UNDER ONE CONDITION! Only around 1% of the mixture should be actual soil. It should be mostly sand, and very little perlite and rich soil. If you want to purchase live San Pedro cuttings you can.


A shop in Kansas called Bouncing Bear Botanicals used to sell cuttings and seeds until they were illegaly raided by the DEA and local police. I feel that the reason they went after them was because they were sharing academic information regarding the phytochemical makeup of these little known cacti ( cactus ) varieties. A lot of folks don't know that if you have the religious right to use these, then you're not actually breaking the law. It's those who don't belong to the right religion who are not legally allowed to consume it. Anyone can own or grow them though, as they are not Peyote, even though in a way they are the same. At any rate, this information is for research purposes only. I've included academic citations and resources on the subject below.
