Discover the Octopus Agave (Agave vilmoriniana), a unique plant with tentacle-like, twisting leaves. This drought-tolerant beauty thrives in full sun or light shade, perfect for low desert regions.

Ideal in full sun or light shade, place it near south, west, or east-facing windows. Water when top 2 inches of soil are dry, avoiding overwatering to prevent root rot.

Light and Watering Needs

Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer monthly during the growing season. Pot in well-draining soil, ensuring the pot has drainage holes for optimal root health.

Fertilizing and Potting Tips

Propagate using stems or offsets for new Octopus Agave plants. Ensure healthy growth by placing stems or offsets in well-draining soil and providing proper care.

Propagation Techniques

Octopus Agave grows fast, flowering once with a spike of golden yellow flowers. Prune during dormancy, and remember, it's toxic to people and pets, so handle with care.
