DESCRIPTION

Agave victoria-reginae - Queen Victoria's Agave

You are bidding for 5 seeds

This is one of the most striking and instantly recognisable Agaves. It originates from Mexico, as indeed do most Agaves. This is a solitary Agave and it is generally accepted that the only way to grow it is from seed. Offsets have been known to occur, but they are rare and cannot be relied upon. The leaves have striking white markings which are apparent from a very early age.

This plant is slow growing and will eventually be around a metre across the rosette. The leaves look almost as if they have been carved or sculpted and have one to three sharp spines on the ends of the leaves, which can take the unwary by surprise, so it should be sited with care wherever it is grown..

As a group the Agaves are known as Century Plants, due to the mistaken belief that they take 100 years before they flower. This species will flower after around 25 - 35 years.. The flower stem grows to 3 - 4 metres in about 10 months or so. The plant then puts all of its energy into this and subsequent seed production. Shortly after this the plant will die, but produces 10's if not 100's of thousands of seeds per plant, just as well given the lack of offsets and the fact that this is the life's work of the plant

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me:

I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify.  If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money. 

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases.  Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

General Disclaimer

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower.  As the vendor, such  factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.

Postage & Handling

International customers - streamlined postage for all seed orders

I will now only be charging two rates for postage for all orders of seeds REGARDLESS of the number of packs bought.

  1. European Rate
  2. Rest of World Rate

Once these rates roll out across my listings, I will once more 'trust' the automated check out process, to make things simpler

These new rates reflects the fact that I use PayPal postage for all my orders and these are the rates I need to charge to use this service

This should allow me to dispatch your orders more rapidly than before as I will not need to visit the Post Office for the majority of the orders, normally inside 24 hours - although at busy times this may take a little longer
