Can finally cross one off the wish list

We all have those elusive plants, that torment you from a far. One of mine, was agave titanota black and blue.  Always loved the various titanota forms (true and false).  A blue form, with very dark almost black teeth was going to make it to the wish list.

After a few years it has finally arrived in Europe in larger numbers.  When a little one turns up, you have to go for it.

It may be a while before it reaches it's full potential.


  1. You found a really choice one. It looks great.

    Titanota grows fairly fast here; it's an easy one and will give you an offset or three. I hope it does well for you.

    1. Thanks. I find them easy as you say and tend to offset nicely and when quite small as well, so not one you have to wait for more mature plant to get offsets from.
