All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended
Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:The plant is as fuss free as it gets and needs very little care. In spring and summers, the growing season, feed your agave plant monthly with a well balanced fertilizer. However, don’t fertilize in the dormant months of winter.
Repotting : Agaves are slow growers and don’t need frequent repotting. Repot them every couple of years in new succulent potting mix to give them a fresh growing medium. Use non glazed pots for better growth.
Propogation : Most agave plants are propagated either by offsets, also called pups, that grow along the main plant or by tissue culture. Agave Tropicana can also be propagated by seeds.
1. Why is my Agave drooping?
Improper watering can lead to drooping of your Agave plant. Both under watering (shrivelled leaves) and overwatering (mushy leaves) can harm your plant.
2. Agave Tropicana leaves are turning yellow
Overwatering is the number one cause of yellowing leaves of the Agave Tropicana. Water your Agave only when the topsoil is completely dry, roughly once a week or once in ten days. Make sure you don’t overwater your succulent.
3. Agave Tropicana leaves are wilting and turning yellow
Female weevils can lead to wilting and yellowing of leaves of the Agave Tropicana. Weevils are beetles that are very common in agaves. Spray your plant with appropriate horticultural pesticides to avoid damage caused by weevils.
Light Requirements :Agaves require bright direct or dappled sunlight for at least 4 to 5 hours a day, especially in the growing season of summer and spring. Even when indoors ensure that it gets at least bright indirect for a good growth.
Locations :A bright south facing window or balcony will be a perfect spot for your little Agave plant. You can also place your agave in a well-lit living room.
Styling/decor tip :Create a mini Zen garden by planting Agave with other similar succulents in a glass terrarium and make them the centre piece in any room. Plant them in beautifully contrasting planters and place them on centre tables or dining table for a chic look. The Agave Tropicana, in a monochrome planter next to a stack of books makes for a great vignette.
