Potting up some agaves

I've had several Agaves in plastic nursery pots for over a year. Some of them were inherited, and some I bought.


I finally put them into permanent pots, or at least pots that will hold them for a few years.


***

Agave weberi  'Arizona Star' was the first:


I've been wondering what I was going to put into this white pot, and I think I've found the perfect plant for it!

What was labeled as Agave parrasana 'Globe':



Agave americana that I got from Loree in a trade will get big so I gave it a bigger pot than it looks like it needs:


I'm curious to see how large this will get this summer. Not that I need more big potted agaves to try and overwinter indoors...


It's already done a fair amount of growing. See its original form here.

I potted up some of the various pups too:



The ones that I moved to the south side of the house where it's blazing hot get some shade from other plants, at least for a little while:


I thought I was finished with this task but found a couple of more agaves yesterday that are still in plastic pots. I also thought that I was out of terra cotta pots but found a few more, so it looks like I'll be doing more of this again soon. Fun but a bit dangerous!

You're really getting with the Agave thing, I am so proud of you!!! Oh and that Agave parrasana 'Globe' looks fabulous in the container with the pie-crust edge.

Loree: I never thought of that as a pie crust edge, but it sure is! It's one of my heaviest pots and I haven't used it for anything permanent before, so I'm glad to have something good to put into it. :)

Yeah for agaves in Missouri! They're looking good. If you need more, I can send you some :-).

Midwest Agaves--fabulous! They look healthy, too.

I don't think I have room to overwinter more agaves indoors, unless they really don't need very much light during the winter. I've seen photos of them stored under tables -- that I could do. Anybody confirm?

Hooray for repotting agaves! I stored three agaves under a table this winter but there was a bit of side light from a window that hit them so not total darkness and they did great with no water all winter. You could mount grow lights under your table.
