Agave macroacantha - Black Tipped Agave - 20 Fresh Seeds

Agave macroacantha - Black Tipped Agave

This listing is for 20 seeds of this smaller agave.

This is a smaller agave, with rosettes up to 90 cm across, with individual leaves up to 40 cm in length tipped with a 2 cm black spine. It is a relatively hardy agave, taking temperatures as low as minus 15 Deg C without damage. To be truly cold hardy it needs to be grown with perfect drainage as is does not like to be wet at the roots if the weather is freezing. Like most members of the genus, it takes while before the plant will flower and, as it is monocarpic, this marks the end of the plants life. The flowering stems are up to 3 metres tall with large clusters of reddish flowers followed by seedpods containing numerous seeds. Needless to say, it will be many years before it reaches flowering maturity, by which stage it will have produced offsets, ensuring the continuation of the plants heritage. It is easy to grow and cultivate. Easy to germinate following the instructions located at this link.
