GTA V Peyote Plant location guide
One new feature in the current gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5 that Rockstar originally kept quiet about is the addition of peyote plant collectibles, which when consumed send you through a hallucinatory trip into the body of a random animal! Some peyote plants turn you into a bird, whereas others transform you into four-legged or aquatic creatures, but until you complete your collection you only get one shot with each plant - so make a save beforehand if you want more than a single attempt at unleashing your inner beast.
There are 27 of these 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 info you need to go on 'spiritual quests' over Los Santos and Blaine County.
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.

1: Mount Chiliad
From the cable car stop at the top of Mount Chiliad, head southeast over the path and look next to the pair of small red flags.
2: Chamberlain Hills / La Puerta
Find the baseball ground on the Chamberlain Hills/La Puerta border, then look between the trees behind the batting cage.
3: Raton Canyon
You'll need a helicopter to reach the top of this rocky outcrop in Raton Canyon, before grabbing the peyote sat in the middle.
4: Mount Gordo
Follow the path through Mount Gordo, then look at the base of a tree by the lake.
5: Los Santos International Airport
Behind Los Santos Customs, look next to the forklift and wrecked bus.
6: Pacific Ocean
At the far end of Del Perro Pier, line yourself up with the concrete pillar left of centre as you look out to sea then dive down to the base to find this underwater peyote.
7: Tongva Hills
At Two Hoots Falls, look on the rocks to the south of the stream below the waterfall.
8: Raton Canyon
Follow the path up to the viewing platform at the top of Raton Canyon, then look on the ground just to the right.
9: Paleto Bay
In the park in north Paleto Bay, find a bench on top of a raised mound and look at the opposite end to the bin.
10: Vinewood Hills
North of these Vinewood Hills houses, look to the side of this drain entrance.
11: Pacific Ocean
Off the coast to the east of N.O.O.S.E headquarters, swim or sail to the most southeastern small island and grab this peyote.
12: Pacific Ocean
In the Pacific Ocean, west of the Great Ocean Highway bridge near a sunken boat. This one is pretty tricky to track down, so grabbing the submarine from the Sonar Collections Dock then exiting and using the scuba gear can help when scouring the sea bed.
13: Alamo Sea
In the Alamo Sea, to the northwest near a rounded outcrop of land.
14: El Burro Heights
South of the El Burro Heights scrapyard, just to the west of the car park across the road.
15: Vinewood Hills
Next to some bushes in Vinewood Hills, near the approach road leading to the Galileo Observatory.
16: Ron Alternatives Wind Farm
Within the trailer park near the wind farm.
17: Grand Senora Desert
On the side of a hill, southeast of the Redwood Lights Track.
18: Vinewood Hills
In the Vinewood Hills by a large rock, near a Park Ranger station.
19: West Vinewood
Use a helicopter to reach the rooftop balcony of the Gentry Manor Hotel, then check the plant pot on the side nearest the road.
20: San Andreas / Magellan Ave
Use a helicopter to reach the rooftop of the Venetian Hotel, then check the plant pot on a small patch of grass to the side.
21: Pacific Ocean
This peyote plant is deep in the ocean east of Humane Labs and Research, so it's best to search for it with the scuba gear from a submarine - if you've completed the Wildlife Photography Challenge then there's one just up the coast to the north. Swim down and look just behind the wreckage of a large truck.
22: Pacific Ocean
Off the coast west of Paleto Bay, swim down near a large group of sponges and a stone archway.
23: Los Santos International Airport
Another underwater one, found in the inlet to the east of the airport.
24: Mirror Park
Check the plant pot on the rear porch of the house in this new development.
25: Mount Chiliad
You may find it easier to grab a helicopter and scout out this location high in the hills surrounding Mount Chiliad.
26: Grand Senora Desert
In the desert west of Trevor's airstrip, near the oil derricks.
27: Fort Zancudo
In a valley running down the hill to the north of Fort Zancudo.
