Succulents contained: Agave montana

Walker, Colin (2022). Succulents contained: Agave montana. CactusWorld, 40(1) p. 71.


Agave montana is aptly named because its natural habitat is in Mexican mountains where it grows, for example, in Tamaulipas above 2,600 m. Flowering chronology is unusual in this species as the spike starts to develop one season, growth then halts for the winter and development to full flowering resumes the following spring. Few species of Agave flower in this as yet unexplained way.
