detailed seed-starting info below

A rather different-looking agave, which slowly grows into a neat, nearly hemispherical rosette of geometrically arranged fleshy leaves outlined in white. I hope that some of my small crop of seedlings make it long enough to where I can see its mature habit.

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