Re: agave hybrids

Good job (tu)
I wish I could have a go at hybridising but it feels like I will never get a plant to flower.

Sorry I did not see your question about whether the plant in photo 3 pups. It has not pupped in the year and a bit that I have had it.
Has anyone got any ideas about the last two photos?
