I have not grown this plant. I found this note at the site named "www.globetrotters.ch"

"Known only as a cultivated plant, book name, no existing specimen known This name shouldn't be used, obviously related to Agave lophantha"

I found the same thing on other sites that said no specimens were found in any natural habitat. Maybe someone can figure this out.
