ABOUT ARTICHOKE AGAVE:
The Artichoke Agave (Botanical Name: Agave parryi) is a flowering succulent plant from the family Asparagaceae. It grows in tight rosettes of broad, thick, rigid, silvery-gray leaves with a prominent dark terminal spine. The Artichoke Agave produces stunning frosty blue rosettes and numerous offsets of smaller rosettes that sprout up all around it. It is commonly called Agave Huachua Cactus, Parry’s Agave, or Mescal Agave. At maturity, the plants grow up to 18-24 inches tall and 20-30 inches wide.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF AGAVE:
SOIL: Well-drained soil is best for succulents. Pots must have holes in them to drain off any excess water.
WATER: Watering can be done only when the topsoil becomes dry. Overwatering should be prevented. Watering can be done directly in the soil. Spraying on the leaves can be avoided.
SUNLIGHT: Proper exposure to light is needed. Soon after planting, 5-6 hours of exposure to the direct sun should be provided followed by keeping them under the indirect Sun.
FERTILIZERS: Any water-soluble light fertilizer can be used during the growth stage of the succulents or during the summer months of March to July.
HOW TO DO REPOTTING IN POTS: The roots are fragile, so repotting should be done very carefully. A well-drained sandy pot mixture should be used for repotting. Water them 3-4 days before the day of repotting. As a general rule, repotting can be done every 1-2 years.
