Agave cupreata - Wikipedia

#AgaveCupreata is a species of plant in the #Asparagaceae family, and is found only on mountain slopes of the Rio Balsas basin in the Mexican states of #Michoac~A!n and #Guerrero at elevations of 1,200-1,800 meters.[1] A. cupreata is a long-lived plant with mature leaves reaching between 4080 cm in length and a flowering stalk of 47 m.[1] The age of maturity for A. cupreata is variable, but generally occurs at any time from 515 years.[2] A monocarpic perennial which does not reproduce clonally, A. cupreata allocates its accumulated resources toward the production of a single inflorescence and dies following the production of seeds.[3] Communities in the mountains of Guerrero harvest and make mezcal out of Agave cupreata, known locally as #MagueyPapalote
