leave it potted Steve,i have to find somewhere big enough to overwinter it as the bulbils take a couple of seasons to mature.plan is to make hundreds of babies :lol:

You need a taller greenhouse Darren :lol:

I've not grown an agave from bulbils so I'll be interested to see how you get on with it.

That's some sight! Congrats icon_thumleft

Looks really cool. Will it have enough time to finish flowering and produce seeds before the cold weather returns, and do these need specialized moths like most yuccas do?

hopefully the wasps swarming the plant are sorting this.it is coming in over winter as it will produce hundreds of plantlets with only a possibility of seed too icon_thumleft
