Agave cupreata. It is medium sized non-suckering Agave that grows to 1 to 2 feet tall by 2 to 3 feet wide with broad pale green leaves that have dark copper colored spines on large mammilate protrusions (teats) along the slightly wavy margins.  Sowing : Use a gritty mix of peat, cocofiber, vermiculite and perlite, sand or similar media. Fill shallowly in trays or pots and sow the seeds on the surface. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil, about as thick as the seeds are. Label with species name and date. Do not cover with plastic or glass. Place trays or pots at temperatures between 25 and 30°C (75 to 90°F) in a brightly lit spot but out of full sun and keep slightly damp but never wet. Seeds will sprout reliably after a few days or weeks. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: February 2024
