Care Tips

Light

  • Full sun is best, but Furcraea will do fine in light shade as well
  • A south-facing exposure or unobstructed east- or west-facing window good for it 

 

Water

  • Drought resistant due to their large root system: watering them infrequently (though more so during their bloom in summer and spring) will be fine
  • Be careful not to overwater
  • As with most succulents, standing water can be lethal

 

Soil

  • Well-draining succulent mix is crucial
  • This plant should never be in water-logged soil or allowed to stand in a tray with water
  • The pH should be slightly acidic

 

Fertilizer

  • Either a controlled-release fertilizer at the beginning of the season or weekly fertilization with a weak liquid solution is fine
  • Needs a 20-20-20 fertilizer at 1/4 strength, while younger ones need one with less nitrogen

 

Repotting and Propagation 

  • When repotting, make sure the soil is dry first, then remove the plant gently from its pot
  • Knock away old soil and any dead roots before repotting the plant and filling it with potting soil, making sure to keep its roots widely spread
  • After repotting, give it about a week before watering again, to avoid rotting its roots
  • It propagates from bulbs that appear at the base of the mother plant
  • These small bulbs can be collected and replanted in fresh containers
  • Make sure, though, to keep them well-drained in their infancy and provide bright light
