I have a 4 inch retro artichoke agave. How much will it grown in a year?

What's a retro agave? Tell me, please tell me the hipster scourge hasn't got there too....

Given ideal conditions, you can expect it to grow at least 10% larger, with some areas reporting a doubling of size in the most ideal environments.

A picture of your plant would help with a more accurate answer.

Proven selection of Agave parryi var truncata. They call it "Retro Choke. Ain't that enough to choke you ?

They are a relatively slow grower.
