Blooming season: Summer.
Cultivation and propagation: They are great Agaves for containers because of their small size. They need full sun to partial shade or very high interior lighting. Plants are not so drought tolerant and requires more water than most agave species. Plants should be watered and allowed to dry before watering again. When grown as a houseplant, the temperature should never drop below 5° C. Not too frost tolerant, during the winter months, only water enough to keep the leaves from shriveling. Ground cultivated plants are tolerant to drought, and salty seaside conditions. Little if any irrigation is needed to maintain the plant once established. The sharp spine at the tip of its toothed leaves is sometimes removed to protect people.
