Gorgeously lance-shaped, gray leaves form copiously full rosettes spanning up to 15 inches in diameter. What gives Mangave ‘Bloodspot’ its name, however, is the mottled maroon spotting across the leaves, which is further enhanced by the coppery teeth and spines that line the margins. Though it can take several years to bloom, this monocarpic variety will begin to die back after sending up 3-foot tall inflorescences bedecked with brown blooms, allowing any offsets to take over in the parent plant’s stead.

Though incredibly dramatic in appearance, ‘Bloodspot’ is a low maintenance specimen to grow, preferring neglect to excessive coddling. Bright sunlight is key to this variety’s best possible growth, so be sure to select its location accordingly. Beyond this, its needs are quite simple – a porous soil mixture, a well-draining pot, and a thorough yet infrequent watering routine will have you well on your way to success!

Hardy only to Zone 9, ‘Bloodspot’ requires protection from frost during the winter months. Furthermore, be sure to protect curious children and pets from this plant’s sharp spines and sticky sap, which can cause irritation to the skin and eyes.

    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.
