Description

Agave Desmettiana ‘Quicksilver’ is a very striking rosette-forming Agave. This agave is a new color variation of Agave desmettiana. Quick Silver is distinguished by its bold and wide center stripe of creamy grey color, and the edges are of a medium green. It makes a stunning specimen plant with the graceful 2 feet long leaves, which curve upward and then out.

The mother plant will die after flowering, but new suckers from below the rosette perpetuate the plant.

Environment

Agaves need full sun and gritty soil that percolates easily. They can even do quite well when potted but use an unglazed clay pot that will allow evaporation of excess moisture.

Water needs are moderate to light depending upon the heat of the season but the Cactus should be allowed to dry out before irrigation

In growing season they benefit from the application of a granulated time release fertilizer that will provide nutrient to the plant.

Landscape Uses

Agave desmettiana 'Quick Silver' does great in containers or in the ground. This species grows on rocky outcrops, in grasslands or pampas, on plains and walls.
Agave plants are easy to care, drought tolerant and perennial. They are hardy plants which require full sunlight and gritty soil. Agaves make for one of the best outdoor plants as they are very low on maintenance and can survive the punishing heat in India.

Watering needs to be done sparingly but thoroughly. Water agaves once the soil goes completely dry. Have a drainage hole so as to let the excess water drain out. Over watering can cause root rot in agave so be careful while watering them. Addition of pebbles and rocks increase the drainage capability in a container.

Agave plants need fertilising only in summers when the plant is actively growing. It is best to leave the plant alone in winters. Do not try to repot it during the winters as it does not like getting disturbed.
