Very hardy but susceptible to fungal attack !! We do not offer this species because in our experience the plant does not adapt well to hot and humid zones. After attempting to grow it on numerous occasions we find it susceptible to fungal attacks, especially during cool moist periods. In our attempts at growing this species the plants will grow moderately well during the summer growing season but then crash in the fall and winter dormant periods, or during prolonged rain events. It is our experience that the lower leaves turn black and mushy due to fungus, making the plant unsightly for long periods of the year, sometimes weakening the plant to the point of death. Others in our region may be successful at growing this species but we no longer attempt its cultivation. If you live in a hot, humid region and have attempted to grow this plant (successfully or not), feel free to leave feedback of your experience in the form at the bottom of this page . This very cold-hardy agave has medium-sized rosettes that are densely packed with glaucous-gray leaves.
