Description:

One of the agaves most sought after and appreciated by green collectors and succulent lovers for its beautiful sculpted and elegant lines that make it suitable for any type of decor. Its leaves are stiff and lanceolate, of a brilliant blue-gray color, with the edges well marked by a thin purplish black line, ending with a dark, long and rigid spine. This rather slow-growing succulent has a rough and leathery skin, hence its nickname of "Sharkskin Agave". One of its strengths is its resistance to cold, which makes it easy to grow even for beginners. Flowering occurs only on mature specimens (after 15 years) in a spectacular way, blooming with yellow flowers on a large central stem which is up to 4 meters high.

Plant care:

It requires a full sun exposure, even if it can stand a partial shade one only if it receives plenty of light all year around.

It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it survives even in temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. Once every two weeks in spring and summer and once every two months in autumn and winter.

A well-draining soil is an optimal solution, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
