Cultivation:

This Agave grows well in slightly-acid, well-drained soils. It needs full sun, but tolerates partial shade in really in hot regions. Put it outdoors in summer, and keep it inside in winter, to protect it from frosting. It need regular watering in the warmest months.

This Agave is an hybrid of Agave attenuata and Agave ocahui.
