When it comes to flowering, Agave splendida produces tall flower stalks that can reach up to 6 feet in height.

As for center stripe agave care, it thrives in well-draining soil and prefers bright, indirect light.

It's important to water it sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. If you're planning to keep Agave lophantha splendida indoors, it prefers warm temperatures of 65 °F – 75 °F. As for outdoor cultivation, this agave is hardy in USDA zones 9-11, which means it can tolerate mild frost but may require protection during colder temperatures. 

Propagation of Agave lophantha splendida can be done through offsets or pups that grow around the base of the parent plant. These can be carefully separated and replanted to produce new plants.
