  6. Its a beautiful plant and your flowers are a gorgeous colour, worth growing for the flowers alone.
  7. Saw them myself and while the 1st pictures are good the 2nd images show some very poor quality plants - dormancy or not. Also saw it's a new account with no feedback history. Returns not accepted - I wonder why!!!
  8. Hi there - lucky you having this lovely hybrid. Yours may be smaller as not yet mature size. Often maturity takes time after division. Also different growing conditions will yield different appearences even in the same cultivar. Have you a picture of your own plant?
  9. Welcomefrom myself as a new member but I also saw that your hobbies included tortoises too. Now thats a cool combination :-)

    Some of my Agaves including Medio Picta Aurea.
  12. Hi All - my first post on the forum but thought I'd share our Agave. I first saw Agave medio picta aurea in the Canaries and wanted one on first sight. They don't grow as large or as blue on the margins. However they are a lovely addition and unusual as the more common form has the yellow confined to the margins of the leaf. They look great on the patio during summer but now housed in the greenhouse as the Autumn weather sets in.

  13. Thank you both for the Welcome to the forum. Enjoying all the information here and looking forward to building a collection.
  14. Thank you Simon for your help. I've sent an email to Hampshire Carnivorous so I'm hoping for the best. Thank you Simon for your help. I've sent an email to Hampshire Carnivorous so I'm hoping for the best.
  15. Hi Crowlord. Also from the region (Ipswich). It's a hobby that's addictive with so many plants to choose from. My favourites are Sarracenia purpurea and another which does well outside (northern type). Best of luck with your plants and plans.
