Care and Propagation Information
General Care for Mangave ‘Bloodspot'
Mangave ‘Bloodspot' is an excellent addition to xeriscaped gardens.
It is a hybrid of Agave, which is monocarpic, and Manfreda, which does not die after blooming. Because of this, it's possible your Mangave will either continue growing after flowering, or may die.
Mangave ‘Bloodspot' 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. If the roots of ‘Bloodspot' remain dry for too long, it will enter a dormancy.
Where to Plant
‘Bloodspot' is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 20° F (-6.7° C), it's best to consider a different succulent for your area. Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day.
How to Propagate Mangave ‘Bloodspot'
Because Mangave ‘Bloodspot' is a hybrid, it can be propagated from offsets.
Mangave ‘Bloodspot' will produce small offsets, sprouting up around the base of the plant. Simply pull these up and allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before replanting.
