SCP-822 is a species of cactus similar in appearance to Lophophora williamsii (Peyote) but with significant differences as the plant reaches maturity within a period of approximately thirty (30) days. As SCP-822 nears maturity, a large gas sac forms within the center of the plant as it reaches its typical maximum dimensions of approximately 10cm in height and 25cm in diameter. This sac is filled with volatile gasses including ████████, ████, and several substances unique to SCP-822. At the same time, the skin of SCP-822 hardens until it reaches a point not unlike sheet metal and seeds begin to form just under the skin. Once the plant is fully mature, it flowers and begins extruding a pheromone that serves to attract mammals of sufficient mass to trigger its anomalous property.
- When any entity collides near SCP-822's mature state, it will create an explosion.
- SCP-822s Document spawns an immature SCP-822. SCP-822 will need to grow to its mature state to be able to explode.
- SCP-822 is to be kept in a 6x5x5 chamber made out of glass for it to grow.
- It is advised that personnel should avoid contact at all times..
