Planting and care

Does well in containers as well as the ground. Plant can grow up to 250 cms across and 250 cms tall. Better the soil more the growth. Plants can grow in small containers and poor soil. You will get what you give! Can be planted singly, in groups or rows. Look good when left un-pruned or with the bottom leaves cut off. See photograph above of three plants whose bottom leaves have been trimmed.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Sun, Part Shade Average, Well-Drained, Rich Low, Drought Tolerant Can survive temperatures as low as -7 to -4 C. Furcraea will take either a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the season or weekly fertilization with a weak liquid solution. Mature Furcraea need a 20-20-20 fertilizer at 1by4 strength, while younger ones need one with less nitrogen.

Caring for Furcraea Gigantea

    Growing F. foetida is as simple a matter as keeping its soil drained and making sure it receives an adequate amount of sunlight. These plants are drought resistant and need to be watered only infrequently in the wild, they often grow on rocks or cliffs and they prefer full sun. If you are growing them in pots rather than your garden, make sure the soil stays fairly dry and repot if necessary.

    Because these grow fairly large, make sure to use a big enough pot to support its root system,the Furcraea foetidas roots can extend three to four feet outward. When repotting, make sure the soil is dry first, then remove the plant gently from its pot.

    Knock away old soil and any dead roots before repotting the plant and filling it with potting soil, making sure to keep its roots widely spread.

    After repotting, give the F. foetida about a week before watering again, to avoid rotting its roots.
