1 Package of 15 Seeds
A highly variable giant Agave from the highlands of central Mexico where it grows at altitudes between 1800 and 2400 m (6000 and 8000 ft).
It forms a rosette of broad, greenish leaves with a diameter of up to 3 m (10 ft). It prefers temperate climates and appreciates good watering and feeding in summer and can take some cold and frost in winter. 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.
