Notes and observations about this plant
- Give it time
- An extremely slow growing but very cold hardy, strong and sturdy agave. The pictured plant must be 5 years old at least at the rate mine is growing. One of my victoria-reginaes was directly stepped on by a neighbor kid (with a footprint under my plant) on the day after I planted it. Other than some bent terminal spines the plant was undamaged. Any other agave in my garden would have been heavily damaged. "The waiting is the hardest part" – Tom Petty. (Posted on 4/25/2016 by DangerGardener).
- Agave victoria-reginae
- Mine is an exceedingly slow grower, but the larger that it becomes the more beautiful it becomes. (Posted on 1/24/2013 by Gregory Sanoff ).
- Be careful of repotting......
- I repotted my 9" Agave Victoria reginae, and the roots were so dense they circled around and around in the pot. I tried pruning back some of the roots and the plant died. Be sure to either plant the whole root ball or start in a bigger pot. They have a tremendous root system unlike a lot of cacti. (Posted on 5/1/2010 by M. Smith).
