These were in a mixed succulent pot I picked up at the grocery store. I am curious, do they look like variegated yucca pups? Or am I way off base? :)
unknown little baby plants
I couldn't tell you the name (agave? furcraea?) but they will most likely eat the other plants in that pot for lunch.
Thanks! I will look that up. I already busted them out of the pot and stuck them in the ground. Immediately when I got home with them... :)
My best guess is Agave sisalana. Looking good!
I'm not sure what that is, but I don't believe it's an Agave. Geoff (palmbob) would probably recognize it.
You may find a candidate or two here: http://dangergarden.blogspot.com/2010/07/furcraea-coolest-plant-youve-never.html

See, it does look pretty much like the mediapicta sport, but I can't tell if the large ones in the pics are toothed or not. Hmmmm?
looks like an Agave to me, but A sisalana usually has less or not teeth... but not always. A sisalana is probably the most likely
A saw some of these guys at big box today, marked A. sisalana from Altman's. I'm still not convinced. They do look sisalana-like, but also seem different. Besides, Altman's gets all their Agave labels wrong, why would they get this one right? :-)
there are two forms of Agave sisalana variegated... a 'floppy-leaved' form, and a stiff-leaved form. The former is also a dwarf plant. I am not 100% sure it is ONLY A sisalana, but it sure seems to be MOSTLY A sisalana.
I wonder of it will be easier to tell as they mature? They are little mysteries, but they seem to be stable and growing already.
It should. I have plain Jane and variegated A. sisalana, and their form is very consistent. A. few months growth might tell the tale.
I see what you mean, the leaves are sisalana-like, but they seem to need starch.
Wow, they are both so different. So far mine seems pretty floppy.
