Where planting agave?


Even though Agave is native to desert plants, you must be careful if placing this plant in direct sun. In a wild environment, they can grow alongside scrub oak or in a place with a shaded area. For smaller or younger Agave, you can place them in partial shade. And for mature Agave, place them in direct sun for several hours.

How to grow agave


Agave is tolerant to drought and heat, like desert climates. They also can grow in mild winter areas and sandy soil with good drainage. Get requiring little water once established. If you get overwatering for this plant, like another plant, the root will rot and invite disease and pest infestation.
