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.
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 be propagated from coring. This forces the succulent to put off pups to survive.
Although it does flower rarely, it is monocarpic and will not grow true to seed.
Using a sharp, sterile knife, behead the top of your Agave rosette. Using a 1/4″ to 1/2″ drill bit, drill straight down into the core of the plant. This will force the Agave to pup.
