Agave is one of the most sculptural existing fat plants and, as its name suggests, comes from the South American regions and particularly from Mexico. Its longevity is the most characteristic of it: it can live up to several decades, and it flourishes once in this time (often when it is already grown), after which it dies. It is also great for the leaves, which have short thorns on the hips and a final chamois on the top. In their natural habitat, they also reach several meters in diameter. From its leaves, both visually and physically strong, several extracts are obtained, including hair tissues, digestive and healing for certain diseases, but its use as an ingredient for Tequila is also frequent.
Care Being a plant that comes from warm climates, it grows well in the sun. In winter, it is well tolerated by temperatures up to -10 ° C. Watering must be done once a month in the winter, and once every 2 weeks in the summer, but only if the soil is dry. It does not tolerate water stagnation. Fertilization is not essential, but it should be done from the spring and until the end of the summer with liquid fertilizer for diluted cactacea in irrigation water. Requires slightly acidic drainage soil for cactaceae, better if it is associated with stones and sand.
