A large, solitary Agave found only in a small area on dry, rocky hillsides near Tehuacan in the Mexican state of Puebla and in neighboring Oaxaca between 1500 and 1900 m.

  • While individual plants can vary a lot in appearance, they are characterized and easily identified by their open rosettes of rigid leaves, well armed with very large, often spurred teeth along the margins and the unbranched inflorescence to 5 m tall with flowers on stalks to 10 cm long.
  • Agave peacockii may well be a hybrid between A. kerchovei and A.marmorata, both of which occur in the same area. It is very rare both in habitat and in cultivation.
  • Germination: Start the Agave seeds in a 50/50 mix of commercial soil and sifted crushed granite. Cover the seeds in a small plastic pot with a small measure of the soil mixture. Usually this is about the diameter of the seed. They should not be placed very deep into the soil. They should be just below the surface. Set the pot in a pan of distilled water and leave there until you see that the soil is wet. Remove the pot and then allow to drain for several minutes. Cover the pot with a plastic bag and secure with a rubber band. Set the seedling on a windowsill where it will receive diffused light instead of direct sunlight. The seedling will begin to sprout after about 4 weeks.
