Agaves come in many sizes, make excellent container specimens and handle being root bound very well.

For example: Agave lurida – smooth slender leaves, easy care, 24-28 inches, yellow-striped margins, loves full sun, will thrive in medium – high light interiors.

When grown in pots agaves can be moved around to provide sun or shade as needed.
