This one of a kind Agave cultivar has a dramatic contrast of yellow stripes that run all the way down to the center of each of the leaves in between the gray green leaf margins. They can reach about 10" in diameter and will produce numerous offsets at the plant base producing dense clumps.
Drought tolerant when established. Needs well-draining soil. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost to prevent possible scarring. Water regularly in hot season.

It got a little beat up in transit but the shipping was fast and it's a pretty agave. It will be fun to watch it grow.
The plant pictured is Agave potatorum Becky. This is not what I received. I received the plant that it is titled. Agave Rum Runner. The difference is Becky is variegated in greens while the latter is variegated in a bright yellow. Just a heads up.
Plants arrived in great shape, well packaged and labeled. Shipping was very fast.
Nice size and healthy, no problems.
Looks OK. I think it will do well with time.
