Agave Lophantha 'Quadricolor'

This Mexican agave is distinguished by its small form and uniquely colorful appearance. While the mid stripes change from lighter to darker shades of green, the variegated yellow or chartreuse marginal stripes are accented with red or purple teeth.Β It is best to protect the plant from full summer sun if being grown in warmer climates. Even though the plant will grow at a faster rate with regular summer irrigation, the succulent is able to withstand dry conditions. In fact, the plant should be kept drier during winter months. This is not a solitary agave. It does produce offsets.

Growing Agave lophantha 'Quadricolor'

  • Plant it in a location with full sun exposure, as it thrives in bright sunlight and well-draining soil to prevent water-logging and root rot.
  • Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings, as it is drought-tolerant once established.
  • Provide occasional watering during the summer months, reducing watering in the winter to mimic its natural dormancy period.
  • Fertilize sparingly with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season to promote healthy growth and vibrant foliage colors.
  • Prune away any dead or damaged leaves as needed to maintain its attractive appearance and remove any offsets that may appear around the base of the plant.
