The Agave Tequilana is originally from Mexico and belongs to the Agavaceae family, currently common around the Mediterranean and they are succulent plants without a trunk with thick fleshy leaves in which the plant stores water and grow directly from the base. Tequila and Agave syrup are made from this plant in Mexico. Very easy plant in care and maintenance, likes to be in the sun.
Care: water every 2 weeks if soil has dried out, keep the soil moist for too long to prevent root rot. Do not water in winter, just spray a little wet, because the leaves contain stomata that absorb enough water during the rest period / winter. Needs little nutrition and only in late spring and summer.
Hardiness: up to -7 degrees
The juice of the Agave is poisonous and can cause skin irritation on contact, the plant is also susceptible
for scale insects, this can be combated by lightly rubbing the leaves with olive oil.
