'Ohi Raijin Shiro Nakafu', which translates from Japanese as "white-centred thunder queen", is a very special variegated form of Agave isthmensis with short, thick, bluish foliage with ivory white centres. The pups form in the leaf axils rather than underground. This dwarf century plant makes a superb miniature specimen and is great as a houseplant.
