|CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.
Agave attenuata is native to Jalisco, Mexico. They send out lots of pups and are great if you need to cover a large area.Agave attenuata require light shade to sun. They originated in the Mountains of central Mexico.
They grow in clumps to 5 feet tall and 5 feet diameter. Water infrequently. Propagate by Suckers (called pups), seeds,
bulbils from the inflorescence. Agave attenuata is a tropical agave and is frost sensitive. This agave will tolerate poor
soil and drought, but does much better in good soil and regular water. Blooms when the plant is 10 years old or more.
It's flower stalk is 7 to 13 feet with yellow-green drooping flowers organized as a raceme. The plant then dies leaving
suckers that grow into replacement plants.
