Good in containers. Agave horrida ssp. perotensis is a relatively easy-to-grow species. It needs a very well-drained soil and is hardy to -7° C (or colder), particularly when dry. It grows fair quickly in summer if provided with copious water but allow to dry thoroughly before watering again. During the winter months, ?
one should only water enough to keep the leaves from shrivelling. These plants do well in full sun or a lightly shaded area. Plants cultivated outdoors are drought tolerant and tolerate blasting heat and full sun. In cultivation this species gives few problems at a lower temperature.
Protect from -7°C
