Product Description

Agave potatorum cv "PETER PAN" is a cultivated variety of Agave potatorum, a species of agave native to Mexico. This cultivar, known for its compact size and attractive foliage, is highly prized among succulent enthusiasts for its ornamental value.

The "PETER PAN" cultivar typically forms rosettes of compact, symmetrical leaves. These leaves are characterized by their striking green coloration, often with subtle variations in tone. The leaves are succulent and fleshy, with prominent marginal spines and a sharp terminal spine. The overall appearance of this cultivar is neat and tidy, making it an excellent choice for small gardens, rockeries, or container cultivation.

During maturity, Agave potatorum cv "PETER PAN" may produce a tall flowering stalk adorned with yellow-green flowers. However, this is a relatively rare occurrence in cultivated specimens.

Cultivation Tips:

  1. Sunlight: Plant Agave potatorum cv "PETER PAN" in a location where it can receive plenty of sunlight, preferably in full sun. Adequate sunlight is essential for healthy growth and vibrant foliage coloration.

  2. Soil: Use well-draining soil with a sandy or gravelly texture. A mixture of cactus potting mix and perlite or coarse sand works well. Ensure that the soil allows excess water to drain away quickly to prevent root rot.

  3. Watering: Agave potatorum cv "PETER PAN" is drought-tolerant once established. Water the plant sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Avoid overwatering, especially during the cooler months, as this can lead to root rot.

  4. Temperature: This cultivar prefers warm temperatures and can tolerate mild frost for short periods. Protect the plant from freezing temperatures, especially during winter, as prolonged exposure to frost can damage the foliage.

  5. Fertilization: Agave potatorum cv "PETER PAN" does not require frequent fertilization. Apply a balanced, diluted fertilizer once or twice during the growing season to support healthy growth.

  6. Container Cultivation: If growing in containers, ensure that the pots have drainage holes to prevent waterlogging. Repot the plant into a slightly larger container as needed to accommodate its growth.

  7. Pest and Disease Control: Monitor the plant regularly for signs of pests such as mealybugs or scale insects. Treat any infestations promptly using insecticidal soap or neem oil.
