Description

Surely one of the neatest and most diminutive of this race, this tiny agave, with delicate, slender, green or bluish-green foliage, looks just like a miniature firework of succulent leaves. A wonderful addition to any rockery or gravel garden, this rare variety was discovered in the slightly more humid forest of central Mexico between 450 and 1500 m (1500 and 5000 ft.) Consequently, it is happy in areas of high rainfall in summer.

Sowing Advice

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.
