Got this lovely young Agave victoriae reginae in a trade, but while repotting it I realised the main plant’s roots were all dead and the only fresh roots belonged to the pup… which I accidentally broke off 💀
Potted the pup up and cut all the roots off the bigger plant, will try to get roots started with water culture before I pot it up 🍀

This agave is highly variable in form, but in general the rosettes are small and compact, growing to 0.5m, composed of short, rigid, thick leaves that are green with a pattern of distinctive white markings.
