I am growing a three species of Puya now; P.mirabilis........... Puya coerulea var. violacea................ Both of these are a couple of years old from seed. As you can see the barbs on the leaves are evil! Hopefully they will both bloom this year. I also have (thanks to @Ian Taylor ) some young Puya berteroniana seedlings. These will take a few years longer to bloom. Is anyone else growing Puya or have you grown them in the past? I also have a question. Is it easy, apart from the obvious issue with the barbs, do remove the offsets and pot them up successfully? Any tips?
