This Agave has a perfectly formed rosette of silver blue leaves, edged with brown spikes. It can grow up to 30cm in diametre, but is a very slow grower. This guy will be more than happy outdoors in sun to semi-shade, or indoors by a sunny window.

Available in a 14cm grow pot. Decorative pots sold separately. 

Flat shipping rates apply per order (add more plants & pay the same on shipping). Gauteng R79. Rest of South Africa R119 (Except Limpopo, Mpumalanga & Northern Cape R149).

Caring for Aldo

Light

Bright light by a north facing window indoors. It needs at least 4 hours of direct sun a day to thrive. Outside it can grow in a spot where it gets shade for half the day.

Water & humidity

Water well once the soil has completely dried out.

Feeding

Feed once during the growing season with a balanced fertiliser. These are slow growing so don't need much food.

Re-potting

Re-pot if it starts to outgrow its container. Use only a succulent mix.

Atrium Top Tip

Try not to get water in the centre of the rosette, but water directly into the soil.

Quirky plant fact

Agaves are often referred to as Century Plants, as they bloom once every 100 years, after which they die. After many years the Kissho Kan can grow 30 -40cm in diametre
