Temprature: Can survive temperatures as low as -7 to -4 °C.

  • 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’re 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 foetida’s 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.

Ornamental use:
  • Good for Hedges and Borders Suitable for road median planting Suitable for avenue planting Salt or salinity tolerant Good on seaside
