My entries in the JHS Flower Show 2009

This year I was persuaded to take in some plants for entry in the Jamaica Horticultural Society Flower Show 2009, which was this past weekend. I managed to persuade my aunt to enter some plants also.

These were my entries:

Aloe "Pepe" descoingii x haworthioides
- earned a third place award.

This Agave got a red ribbon - second place

Not sure if I want to do it again next year but it was a good experience and I haven't ruled it out yet. Still have quite some time to think about it and be more prepared if I decide to go again.


  • Hi, Jade. That Agave in the last photo is magnificent! Congrats on all your ribbons!

  • Thanks. The Agave has at least ten little ones so I hope to take off some offsets when they are a bit bigger.

  • I just gave away my Agave desmettiana variegata (the one in your last pic) to my local nursery as a holiday gift in December and I'm already regretting it. The only reason I did is because they're one of the least cold-hardy agaves I've owned, and get major damage outdoors here in zone 9A/8B.
