Agave univittata

Family agavaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers greenish
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil
From seed Germinates readily at room temperature with exposure to light
detailed seed-starting info below

Species sometimes considered synonymous with A. lophantha, but our seed-grown plants should be quite different from the fancier varieties of that species. From what I can tell, a fairly typical agave, with spiny green leaves (often with a lighter-colored midrib) and greenish flowers when it finally decides to bloom.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
