Planted a bare-root purchase about a year ago in a ceramic pot with cactus mix. This agave has grown slowly but looks extremely healthy. Receives morning sun and lots of shade rest of the day. Watered well once every 2 1/2 weeks in summer, not at all in winter. Is not heavily armed with spines and looks as though it might become lunch for desert critters if planted in unprotected areas. Mature plants look highly attractive in the few photos I have seen. Very cold hardy.
