Thanks for asking! :)

Well they have characters too.
I mostly care for/ about the magic ones tho...
What I understood during the years is that they don't like full-on sun, as expected. Actually they burn / boil themselves very quickly. They don't like rains only without sunny days in between :)
(if cacti are grown from seeds ,it's a whole new story and a lot of care + patience during the first 4-5 years)
I suppose my cacti are still infants, not letting them grow too much cause i need to move them inside for winters :)
I've had a big one before... he rotted, I couldn't even save a piece from it to propagate :) ...the mold spreads so fast and infects even when cutting...
You can count the years looking at the growing patterns along the stem. And that's a good idea for the next post to show the growth on a photo.

What can I do for cacti to grow good and faster...is like other plants....
nutrition, good soil/medium, fair light/sun and clean water :)
(i only use compost, but put many pebbles inside and on top :P and some snail shells- AS A TROPHY :D... joking but yes cacti love some limestone, clay chunks, gypsum?!)

I never saw my SanPedros bloom :| (because of becoming dormant during winters)
I tried growing peyote several times, but with no luck for me :)

For now just continuing to grow!

I heard peyote takes 10-12 years to mature in nature, but in a greenhouse it can take 3-5 years.

And does peyote have the highest Mescaline content? Or is it a different cactus? Peyote and San Pedro seem to be the most popular. I do recall that there where quite a few cacti that had mescaline.

Peyote does have the highest mescaline content and it is a different type of cactus.
I think many other cacti synthesize mescaline, but with much lower concentration (I'm not sure about that).
