1 package of 10 seeds

 A superb, solitary species from Sonora, Mexico, where it is at home on dry, rocky limestone slopes.

  • It forms a beautifully rounded rosette to 80 cm 32 in. in diameter, consisting of numerous, hard, glossy green leaves, often with a reddish tinge, that have pale, thornless margins and a long, pale apical spike. The tall flower spike carries striking, deep red, bell-shaped flowers.
  • Mescal Pelón appreciates a place in full sun on well drained soil and will tolerate drought and moderate freezes.
  • 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.
