Lots of Ohs and Aws as I undid each little bundle, I planted them in community pots for the winter. My first Agaves (darn you Jeff I think you've got me hooked :), a Haworthia, 2 Crassulas and 2 Aeoniums I didn't have, and a little Pachy x.

I mixed up a slightly moist quick draining mix for them, hope they like it. Thanks again Jeff.

Hi Annette,
Those are all very beautiful! Jeff does have some really nice little Agaves!

I love getting a box of plants! It's like Christmas any day of the year opening the little bundles. lol...

Just to let you know..
In the future when you get new plants or repot them, they should go in a dry mix for a few days to allow the roots to callous over just in case any broke, to avoid rot.

Thanks JoJo, I was keeping that in mind when I made the potting mix up. It was only the sunshine #4 that was a slightly damp not really wet, the other ingredients grit, perlite and something that looks like turface were bone dry as were the clay pots. There wasn't any damage on the roots that I could see and I kept the mix light and airy just tapping the pots to settle the mix. I'll keep these in the house for the winter, move them out to the greenhouse in the spring.

Annette,

They got there a day early and in fine fettle - I'm glad you're happy with them. If, in a year, you find yourself surrounded by lots of miniature Agaves, I'd be proud to say I knew her when....
