how do i car for a fucraea

On plant Furcraea



Well, part of the answer is going to depend on what kind of Furcraea it is, but they do have some things in common. In the ground, let the top 10-15 cm of the soil dry out between waterings. In pots, let the top 3 cm dry out. The thicker the leaf in proportion to it's width, the longer it can go without water. Most of the wider-leaved species like a little afternoon shade. The ones with narrower leaves and bigger spines can take full sun. They don't need much food, but something like rose food once or twice a year in the ground, or once a month in containers, will help keep them growing and well colored. Further info if you can ask again with more particulars.
