yea I d\see what you are talking about now i thought the buttons people where talking about was the ones like mine which is the size if a baseball the other one a soft ball and that is a nice mature plant and buttons are grape sizeish I love my peyote cactus. It has like 50+ 1/2 inch cotton pieces sticking out in spots it is beautiful.
I'm a little confused. When people refer to "buttons", do they mean a whole cactus, or the dried slices referred to as "buttons" by wikipedia, or what? Because a friend has come into the possession of a cactus about the size of a tennis ball, and all this talk of consuming ten+ buttons has me wondering if he has enough peyote to even mildly trip.
I couldn't eat ten of those things. For a start it would cost me around £300.
