Planting and care

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.
