- Agave that is grown in pots require even more grit in the soil and can actually be planted in a cactus mix.
- The addition of small rocks or pebbles to the soil increases the drainage capabilities of the container.
- Agave plants in containers will require more water than those in the ground and will need to be repotted every year or so to replenish the soil and root prune the plant.
- Agave plant care for container grown plants is otherwise the same and it affords you the ability to bring sensitive forms indoors when temperatures plummet.
You can put it outside in summer and spring, with indirect light, but it will need to remain indoors during fall and winter.
Care And Nurture
- Bright, south or south-east light. If natural light is not adequate, you can supplement with a nice natural white fluorescent bulb.
- When the soil is dry it is time to water.
- Dry climate, outdoors: Water every two to three days when warm and sunny.
- Humid, cool or indoors: Water every week.
- During the fall and winter months, the plants should be watered less frequently in order to promote blooming.
soil and fertilizer
- Use a potting soil mix with a little sand; good drainage.
- Apply standard liquid fertiliser every two weeks during the active growing period. Do not fertilise the plant during the resting period.
