Agave striata (Agavaceae)(price per 10 seeds) This colony-forming “Century Plant” forms a dome-shaped rosette of quill-like leaves reaching an impressive 3’x3’ with time. Sowing: Sow indoors at any time of year. Fill small pots or trays with a light and well-aerated compost. (John Innes Seed Compost, with the addition of ½ gritty sand is an old favourite). Do not firm the mixture down. Stand the pots in water, moisten thoroughly and drain. It will be good to stand the containers on a tray of damp sand, so that they do not dry out. Scatter the seed onto the top of the compost or, if the seed is larger, sow individually and press lightly into the compost. Do not cover small seeds with compost. Secure a polythene bag around the pot or cover the container with glass or and place in a warm shaded place. If possible, germinate in a propagator. Care should be taken to prevent the pots drying out from below. Many people make use of a warm place such as the airing cupboard, or near the kitchen boiler. The majority of seeds germinate best at a temperature of 22 to 24 ºC (70 TO 75 ºF). Some seedlings may appear within a week or 10 days others will take longer. At lower temperatures, germination usually takes considerably longer. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: October 2018
