This crested/ cristate agave oteroi may have originated in this form from one single plant at San Marcos growers. This is the weirdest and coolest thing I’ve ever seen in an agave! I've seen crested inflorescences in agaves, but never the whole plant! It's even a dwarf form! The mother plant started cresting several years ago and this is a rooted portion of the crest.

Agave oteroi is a very special, sculptural agave. Bright white margins of large teeth along each leaf, growing in an artichoke shape. Usually up to 30" across, but this form does not get huge! Great for pot culture as a solo specimen. Agave collectors' dream!

We have read Starr Nursery's article about Agave titanota, the former Agave FO-076 and Agave oteroi. These species have been dramatically mixed up in the horticultural world and we offer our correction. We have been labeling Agave oteroi incorrectly as titanota. Oteroi has a much different and compact shape with different spines, locality, etc. Here is a link to the article!
