This slow-growing succulent exhibits impressive blue-green leaves with a reddish-pink margin, featuring slight waviness and a glossy sheen. While it can grow up to 60cm and 80cm wide, it usually remains smaller when grown in containers.
Agave ‘Blue Glow’ prefers full sun and well-draining soil. It displays remarkable drought tolerance and thrives in hot, dry climates.

Agave 'Blue Glow’' thrives in a dry environment. Ensure the potting soil is sufficiently wet during watering by allowing the water to flow out of the bottom of the pot. Signs of dehydration include yellowing leaves. In a well-ventilated environment, the soil dries quickly, so you may need to shorten the watering interval.
During its growing season in summer, you can slightly increase the amount and frequency of watering. As Autumn begins, reduce watering as the plant's growth rate slows. Keep the potting soil dry at this time. The plant will enter dormancy if the temperature drops to 10℃ in winter. In this case, stop watering and ensure it stays warm to survive winter. Start watering again when the temperature rises above 20℃ in Spring.
Agave 'Blue Glow' will thrive with an application of an All Purpose, Slow-Release fertiliser every 6 months.
Agave 'Blue Glow' requires a well-lit and well-ventilated environment for the best growing conditions.
Agave 'Blue Glow' is native to the arid and semi-arid tropical regions of the Western Hemisphere. It thrives in warm and dry environments, with an adaptable growth temperature of 15 to 25℃. At night, it prefers temperatures between 10 and 16℃. A cold and dry winter benefits its reproduction, but the ideal temperature should be above 5℃.
