A superb, very-rarely-seen, medium sized agave, the rosettes of which ultimately form incredible spherical 60-120cm balls of countless, needle-like, densely packed slender spears. Native to limited areas in the Puebla region of Mexico, just south east of Mexico City, it is easy to cultivate, and relatively hardy to moderate frost and drought.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
