Fantastic Agave! Takes full sun, hardy, and pups to such an extent as mildly invasive. They're quite small, mine is about 14", though still growing, but with all the pups, it makes for a stunning colony.

Nice, compact plant. I got this plant in part because of the promised compact form. Mine is, perhaps, 6 inches across now, with several shoots being sent out to produce more pups.
It has been growing in a large, Mexican strawberry pot and weathered this past year's winter there. Temperatures dropped to 17 degrees F.

I have one, too and it hasn't grown either...about 2 1/2 to 3". Of course, I have it in the house here so that may be the problem. I am going to list it as a special trade for for a bit and if it doesn't go quick, then I will plant it at the shore house across the Chesapeake Bay in VA. My Agave that was not supposed to live there made it through the winter but did have some freeze damage to the leaves. It was a colder than usual winter.
