how to care

Agave is not a difficult plant to grow. They grow slowly and are dramatic and even thrive with a little neglect.

The Agave can be aggressive, they have irritating sap and sometimes very sharp thorns that can cause injuries.

In general, Agaves do not need to be replanted every year. Most species commonly found in cultivation grow very slowly and take a long time to outgrow their pot. It is also better to handle Agave as little as possible, as it does not like to be disturbed.

When repotting, change the spent potting mix with new potting mix and make sure the plant is firmly anchored in the pot.
