To swap with Myke

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Slower to grow than my other Agaves with fewer offsets or pups than the others, but a great addition.

    I'm not interested in minor variable differences over species I already have an interest in, but keep an eye out for new and unusual varieties instead, for example Kniphofias, Agaves, or Aeoniums.
