This is a very intriguing plant which, as far as I can tell, has never made it into cultivation. If anyone has botanically-inclined contacts in Brazil, it would be nice to change that! Pilocarpus pauciflorus has the potential to fill a void in the market: a viable plant source of 5-MeO-DMT. Sure, the occasional Anadenanthera seed will contain predominantly 5-MeO-DMT, but more often they contain primarily bufotenine. They simply aren't reliable. Phalaris grasses are even less reliable. Virola resin sounds like a plausible candidate, but the commercially-available bark has historically been a bust. Enter Pilocarpus pauciflorus, weighing in at more than 0.5% 5-MeO-DMT by weight. To be fair, that's based on a single analysis (Balsam & Voigtländer 1978). It is possible this plant may turn out to be a bust... but it could just as easily become a must-have. If you're looking for further information on the plant, most of the literature on it refers to it by the now-outdated synonym, Pilocarpus organensis. Any ideas on how to obtain a plant which is not currently known to be in cultivation anywhere? Reference Balsam, Günter, and Hans W. Voigtländer. 1978. Ein psychotropes Alkaloid aus Pilocarpus organensis. Archiv der Pharmazie 311(12):1016-1018. DOI: 10.1002/ardp.19783111207
