Ariocarpus fissuratus is a slow growing species of cactus that is native to Northern Mexico and Western Texas. The species is also commonly called False Peyote, Living Rock Cactus, and Chautle. The cactus consists of many small greyish-green tubercles from a single large taproot. Ariocarpus fissuratus will produce pink flowers once it has reached maturity after approximately 10 years. Because of their slow growth, it is common for people to graft Ariocarpus fissuratus onto a fast growing columnar cactus species such as Trichocereus pachanoi.
