An especially slow-growing succulent, Agave 'Blue Glow' features chalky, blue-green leaves with yellow and red margins that comprise perfectly symmetrical rosettes, reaching up to 24 inches tall and 36 inches wide. A stunning specimen on its own, this variety boasts short red spines on each leaf tip as well as finely serrated margins, so be sure to handle with care – and place away from a highly trafficked area of your home, where it could snag the clothing of passersby!

Agave are known for their ability to thrive in difficult environments, so don’t expect this variety to require a lot of coddling. In fact, a brightly lit location and an occasional but thorough watering are the keys to a robust Agave ‘Blue Glow.’ A porous soil mixture, supplemented with perlite or pumice, will safeguard against any accidental overwatering, as will a pot with a sufficient drainage hole. During the winter months, take care to protect this succulent from frost, and be mindful of the fact that its sap can be irritating to the skin – so also plan to protect this variety from curious children or pets! 

While ‘Blue Glow’ is monocarpic – meaning that it will begin to die back after flowering – its yellow blooms will emerge on stalks up to 10 feet tall only once the plant has matured over the course of a decade or more.

    All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.

    Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!

    I love to shop here and highly recommend this company. I’ve learned a lot about different succulents and cacti and my garden is beautiful.

    We received the packaged succulents and had a wonderful time going thru, finding what cool plants were hiding inside. We then transplanted them into two pots gave them a spritz of refreshing water and admired their beauty.

    I really like finding plants that aren’t typically found in my local greenhouses. The plants themselves come so loved, well packaged and ready to be placed.
