Agave nizadensis [striata hort] Octopus Agave

Agave nizadensis [striata hort]
Agave nizadensis [striata hort]
Stock Number: 68017
Availability: In Stock
Family: Asparagaceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH what's this?

"Octopus Agave" Coppery-green outfacing, spreading leaves with decorative amber mid-ribs and tiny whitish teeth. Oaxaca native. Beware: the outthrust slim but thick succulent leaves are easily broken and thus a serious challenge to our expert packing crew. Sometimes offered in Florida as 'striata'--which is actually a completely different species. We offer the correct species which, being slow to offset, may have availability issues if overordered, so best to INQUIRE before ordering.

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.
