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 If you're looking for further information on the plant, most of the literature on it refers to it by the now-outdated synonym, Pilocarpus organensis.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?
