They came along with directions about how to successfully root them. Under the plastic bags are potted cuttings. I can't wait for them to root and grow.
Agave pups travel very nicely and here are some that showed up between freezes. Agave isthmensis varigated is a small agave even when fully grown.
Just out of tissue culture (so they'll probably be more common soon) is Agave parryi truncata "Lime Streak"
I'm hoping that it will someday look like this NFS beauty I saw at Jungle Fever Exotics Nursery last summer.
I also ordered a baby Agave 'Joe Hoak' before I found one at a Sky Nursry.
A free gift of an Agave sisalana mediopicta came with the pups. It's so nice of plant sellers to do this!
When I lived in Alaska many years ago, I ordered a lot of plants through the mail but am fairly new to doing so these days. Do you purchase plants online? Have you had positive experiences?
