For sowing, use a gritty mix of peat, cocofiber, vermiculite and perlite, sand or similar media. Fill shallowly in trays or pots and sow the seeds on the surface. Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil, about as thick as the seeds are. Label with species name and date. Do not cover with plastic or glass.Place trays or pots at temperatures between 25 and 30°C (75 to 90°F) in a brightly lit spot but out of full sun and keep slightly damp but never wet. Seeds will sprout reliably after a few days or weeks.When the seedlings are well established, plant them in individual pots, using a very well drained medium, label, and place in bright light. Once rooted, with few exceptions, they can take full sun in all but the hottest climates. Feed and pot on as required. Excellent drainage is essential for most Agaves and Yuccas.
