Aztekium ritterii it is called “Peyotillo.” However,
even though it contains N-methyltyramine, hordenine, anhalidine,
mescaline, pellotine, and 3-methoxytyramine, there have been no
ethnobotanical reports that state that it has ever been used by native
Indians.[unreliable source?][dead link]
Aztekium ritteri blooms throughout the summer, producing an
abundance of white and pink flowers measuring less than one centimeter
in diameter. These flowers are followed by small pink fruit that open
when ripe and let out tiny seeds.
