    Recently I bought a small creamy stripe agave parryi and after a while I found out that the plant was producing an albino offset , don`t really know if I want to keep it to the main plant or try to cut the albino offset , but I got the idea that i`ll may die .

      As you know I don't like variegated plants, but I do like the albino offset! If it was mine I would leave it as it is until the spring.
