    Design IdeasUnlike many Agaves which grow to be huge specimens, 'Kissho Kan' stays small, eventually growing only about a foot high. Its smaller size makes it ideal for growing in patio pots and troughs with other succulents.

    Care Information
    Provide well drained soil away from reflected heat. Tolerates drought once established; looks best with supplemental watering during the hot season. Mother plant will die after flowering but new suckers from below the rosette perpetuate the plant.
