We have a 10 -12 agave plant blooming in the house. It started the shoot in October when we brought it in from outside. It has yellow flowers on it now, blooming from the bottom up. How do we cultivate the seeds and what are the seeds?

Washington County Minnesota propagation agave

Your agave plant may need a pollinator to make viable seed depending on which kind it is. It maybe self sterile and will not make viable seed. Many of the agave die after flowering. Vegetative propagation is possible and usually
not difficult.
Congratulations on getting it to flower.
