Agave Care: Plants are vulnerable to freezing weather when small (less than 6 inches in diameter) and harden off rapidly as they mature. Cover small rosettes with clear plastic (extend out to at least 1 foot beyond the edge) during winter to avoid loss or minimize leaf spotting when excessive cold is forecasted. For zones 5,6 & 7 I recommend planting outdoors in early spring after the last frost has passed to get well established before the next winter. For zones 8, 9 etc. they can be planted anytime during the growing year.

​Flowering & Offsets: All species sold here produce numerous pups and can be removed quite readily if not desired. If transplanting, wait until pups are at least 3 inches in diameter (when they have enough of their own roots) before digging up. Mother plants stop producing pups about 1-2 years before flowering to save all energy for the massive flower stock, so be vigilant when pups stop appearing.
