It works beautifully as a single large specimen and also when planted amass with other agaves.

  • The addition of small rocks or pebbles to the soil increases the drainage capabilities of the container.
  • Agave plants in containers will require more water than those in the ground and will need to be re-potted every year or so to replenish soil and root prune the plant.
  • Agave plant care for container grown plants is otherwise the same and it affords you the ability to bring sensitive forms indoors when temperatures plummet.

Typical uses of Agave Victoriae

Special features: This plant is known to some as the century plant, because it is thought to flower only once every 100 years; however, this is misleading as it usually flowers after 20-30 years of storing enormous food reserves in its leaves and then dies.

Culinary use: NA

Ornamental use: Agave is hardy enough for the most exposed courtyard or balcony. It makes a dramatic statement in the landscape and is much favoured for use in rock gardens. In many gardens, Agave is best grown in containers. The gigantic leaf-rosettes of these splendid succulents rank them among the most popular accent plants for modern gardens.

Medicinal use: NA
