Διάμετρος γλάστρας:10.5εκ., Ύψος:15εκ.
A perennial succulent plant, which forms small-medium sized rosettes, reaching over time up to 1 m in height and width.
It has needle-like, narrow and long leaves of a blue-green color. Its habit is initially erect, and then cascades over time.
Flowering occurs in autumn on long peduncles, and unlike many agaves it is not monocarpic, which means that the flower does not pass away after flowering.
- 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.
