Fast growing, it resembles Octopus Agave but smaller to 3' tall
and wide. The soft fleshy leaves are light green with generally
smooth edges and a stout terminal spine with a creamy stripe on
the margin. It is happiest in filtered sun but on the coast full
sun is fine and does need a well drained soil. It is great in
containers. It does die upon blooming but produces an abundance
of pups at the base.
