I just planted a bunch of Puya bertoniana seeds that I got from Chileflora. Hopefully some will come up!

I have found a number of Puya species surprisingly tolerant of high humidity

and high rainfall.  I grew Puya alpestris, Puya beretoana (beretoniana) and

Puya mirabilis from seed in Honolulu.  They grew equally well in the arid

lowlands and the high rainfall upper valleys.  P. mirabilis will bloom in 2

years from seed at sea level in Hawai'i. Pictures:
