Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Agave ‘Blue Glow’

Agave ‘Blue Glow’ is a hybrid of Agave attenuata and Agave ocahui. It grows well in rocky soil, making it a great addition to outdoor succulent gardens. ‘Blue Glow’ is deer and rabbit resistant.

Watering

Agave ‘Blue Glow’ has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Where to Plant

Agave ‘Blue Glow’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 20° F (-6.7° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.

Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).

How to Propagate Agave ‘Blue Glow’

Agave ‘Blue Glow’ can’t be propagated from pups, offsets, or seeds. Although it does flower rarely, it is monocarpic and will not grow true to seed.
