Price: $25.00

Wonderful and rare variegated spinelss Agave. This was originally introduced by Ed Hummel in the 1960s. It has always been considered a rare and unusual plant and sometimes drew prices of upwards of a thousand dollars. This is a meristemmed version that has come down in price and sometimes goes under the clonal name of Kara's Stripes. We are pleased to be able to offer it. Many very distinctive plants came from Hummel's Nursery in the 1960s. Look below for another which we indirectly introduced through our mail order which originally came form Hummel's Nursery, the Agave americana Cornelius Baja.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
