The various GTA 5 peyote plants you find in Grand Theft Auto 5 let you turn into an animal via the power of seriously hallucinogenic drugs. These cactus are scattered around the map and finding one of the 27 available is a needle meet haystack job without our handy GTA 5 peyote plants location round up.
Eating a GTA 5 peyote plant will cause immediate hallucinations, effectively turning you into a some sort of animal and letting you run around and cause trouble in your new body. It could be almost anything you see in the game - a bird, cat, dog, or even some sort of sea creature. You won't get a choice initially, but the plant will make noises that should give you a clue. It's worth knowing, before you set out, that each GTA 5 peyote plant is a one shot deal until you've collected them all, so you can't go back to an area a second time until you've got them all – it might worth making a backup of your save before eating one if you want to relive the fun in that area again anytime soon.
There are 27 of these GTA 5 peyote plant locations to find in total, and their small size means that you're unlikely to stumble across them by accident – fret not though, as we have all the information you need to go on 'spiritual quests' over Los Santos and Blaine County. A separate set of GTA Online peyote plants have also been added to the online world, so if you're looking for those then check out our separate guide.

While collecting peyote plants, it's possible that the in-game counter may glitch and display one less than you've actually found, which seems to happen if you die while on your search. If you find yourself in this situation, return to the peyote plant in Raton Canyon overlooking the Alamo Sea (#8 in our guide) to find that it should have respawned, allowing you to eat it again and correct your counter. [UPDATE - this issue should now have been fixed with a patch.]
