Description

This unusual agave comes from Central Mexico where the plants grows on rocky cliffs at medium altitudes.

Unlike most agave, it does not have any spines or thorns, meaning it can be planted anywhere without becoming a danger to man nor beast.

Its unarmed leaves resemble octopus tentacles, reaching out and then twisting back towards the ground.  

It does not require much maintenance and will grow in adapt perfectly to container growing.

It grows relatively quickly, reaching a width of 1.2 – 1.8 metres (4-6 feet) at maturity.

In the wild, it produces huge tall flower after 10-15 years. 

When watered heavily, it will grow much faster and flower as early as five years.

Keen to reproduce, the impressive flower stalk will make an abundance of bulbils – small clones of the original plant that will fall to the ground

and continue to grow nearby. In addition, pollinated plants produce seeds as well.
