This is where it starts to get tricky. If they are in a peat based compost then once wetted they are too wet, so you have to be very careful. In a loam/grit compost that drains/dries quickly then they will need a few sparse waterings from the bottom, never the top.sanatic1234 wrote:So give them the agaves a light watering every so often over the winter then or more often with them being small the bigger ones i have had 2 years now they seem to be fine with being watered once over winter. Have notice that my Aeonium drops quite a few leaves over winter but i did put that down to lack of sunlight.
Best conditions from my experience are:
Gritty loam based compost - quick draining/drying
plenty of airflow
Peat/bark compost, even if grit added, as drains but stays wet.
enclosed with no airflow.
Indoors is not the best place for them, and should be stood outside in a cool, dry, sunny place as often as possible
