The Agave victoriae-reginae commonly known as the Queen Agave, is a plant that’s slow growing. It forms a compact rosette of thick, dark green leaves with white margins and small, dark teeth along the edges.
The plant typically grows to about 30-60cm tall and wide and prefers well-draining soil and full sun to partial shade. It is a drought-tolerant plant that is well-suited to hot, dry environments. In the summer, it produces a tall stalk with greenish-yellow flowers attractive to bees and other pollinators.
Agave victoria-reginae is a popular ornamental plant commonly used in rock gardens, xeriscapes, and container plants. It is also an excellent choice for those looking for a low-maintenance plant, as it requires little water or fertiliser once established.

This succulent requires a well-lit and well-ventilated environment, preferably in full sun.
This succulent prefers a dry environment, so the "soak and dry" method is best. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. While Queen Agave requires little water, ample water and ventilation should be provided during growth. Gradually reduce watering during the winter months.
Queen Agave will benefit from an application of an All Purpose, Slow-Release fertiliser every 9-12 months.
The lower/under leaves will gradually become yellow and dry as new leaves grow. Removing the old leaves promptly will keep Queen Agave looking good.
Native to arid and semi-arid tropical regions, Queen Agave thrives in warm and dry environments.
Plant Queen Agave in loose, fertile soil with good drainage.
