Domino Magazine’s Ivette Soler has learned the harsh lesson of the Agave life cycle.
(M)y prized variegated Agave attenuata – I bought it about eight or nine years ago at a cactus and succulent show…. I had a coronary – it was a $150 succulent in a one gallon pot….
And then came the freeze (last year)… I was so devastated I cut the melted leaves of ooze from the stem and stuck the pot somewhere in the dark recesses of the garden.
I stumbled upon that pot yesterday. Look at it. Pups. Plural. Meaning more than one. And gorgeous.
Now that’s what I call a variegated agave. And a happy ending. Maybe she should be selling some of those pups on ebay, or offer them to me, direct.
