Agave schidigera - White-Edged Agave
Agave schidigera has white-edged leaves with threadlike protrusions from its leaf margins. Technically a subspecies (full Latin name: Agave filifera subsp. schidigera), the species name means "bearing a splinter of wood," which refers to those white fibers. The rosette of dark leaves outlined in white make a beautiful graphic statement, but—Be warned: The leaf tips are very sharp! Grow this plant out of reach from pets and children, and be extra cautious unwrapping this plant.
• Light: Bright light. Direct light preferred.
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when soil is dry. Reduce watering frequency in winter.
• Considerations: Use well-draining soil and a pot with drainage hole. This plant is sharp! Watch out for the dangerous leaf tips that can easily draw blood. We recommend keeping this plant away from pets and children.
