The Black Lotus is a mysterious plant with hallucinogenic and esoteric properties. It was notably cultivated in ancient Xuthal (CIRCLE: "The Slithering Shadow", Robert E. Howard). and before that in Acheron and Stygia (EXP: "Dreams of the Black Lotus", Lin Carter). It is still grown by the Tcho-Tcho People on the Plateau of Sung (EXP: "Dope War of the Black Tong", Robert M. Price).
