Agave schottii (10 seeds)


Out of stock

Agave schottii (price per 10 seeds) This plant originates in Arizona, New Mexico and northern Mexico at elevations between 3,500 and 6,000 feet and often grows on north and eastern facing slopes. The leaves form a basal rosette and are green to yellow-green in color, tipped with a sharp spine, and have slender, curling fibers at the 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: March 2020
