Product Description

Agave potatorum 'Desert Diamond' is a variegated cultivar of the Agave potatorum, a species of agave native to Mexico. This cultivar is particularly prized for its striking appearance and variegation. Here's a detailed description:


  • Appearance: 'Desert Diamond' is a rosette-forming succulent. The rosettes are compact and symmetrical, with each leaf arranged in a way that contributes to the overall spherical shape of the plant.
  • Leaves: The most striking feature of this cultivar is its leaves. They are thick and fleshy, with a strong, pointed tip. The variegation presents as creamy-white or yellow margins along the green leaves. This contrast creates a visually appealing pattern.
  • Size: This cultivar remains relatively small compared to some other agave species, making it suitable for container gardening or small garden spaces. The rosettes can grow up to about 1-2 feet in height and width.
  • Flowers: Like other agaves, 'Desert Diamond' may eventually produce a tall flower spike, although this can take many years, and the plant typically dies after flowering.

Cultivation Tips

  1. Light: Requires full sun to partial shade. The variegation can become more pronounced with adequate sunlight.
  2. Watering: Like most agaves, it prefers infrequent watering. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, and be cautious of overwatering, especially in cooler months.
  3. Soil: Needs well-draining soil. A cactus or succulent mix is ideal.
  4. Temperature: It's relatively hardy but should be protected from extreme cold or frost. In colder climates, it's best grown in a container that can be moved indoors.
  5. Placement: Due to its compact size and ornamental appearance, it's well-suited for rock gardens, desert landscaping, or as a potted plant on patios or indoors.


  • It can be propagated through offsets (pups) that grow around the base of the parent plant. These can be removed and potted separately.

'Agave potatorum 'Desert Diamond' is a stunning variegated agave, sought after for its unique and decorative foliage. It's relatively easy to care for, provided it's given enough light and not overwatered. This plant is a great choice for anyone looking to add a touch of architectural beauty to their garden or indoor plant collection.
