1 Package of 25 Seeds
  • A splendid Agave from central and southern Mexico that forms a large rosette of wide, dark green to gray green leaves. Mature plants can get to 3 m 10 ft. tall.
  • An outstanding and dramatic plant for drier warm temperate regions that will thrive on regular watering and fertilizing. It can take some drought and light freezes.
  • In Mexico, it is the premier source for the production of Pulque and Mezcal and has recently received additional attention as a superior source of Agave nectar, a natural, low-glycemic sweetener.
  • 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.
