My new plant arrived, Thank you for trusting Eureka Farms with your recent purchase, We grow and care for our plants and hope that you will too, our main objective is to ensure a great customer experience and deliver great quality plants for your enjoyment. Plants shipped online are in complete darkness for several days, is normal for plants to stress during this process, before planting allow your new arrival to gradually climatize for a few days to its new environment, humidity levels, lighting and temperatures.
DISCLOSURE - Please note False Agave are susceptible to some yellowing and browning of the bottom leaves, stress from shipping and natural growth will cause the bottom fronds to yellow before browning, some level of maintenance is needed, trimming the frond once they begin to brown is needed, you may prune the frond from the bottom section of its own stem about an inch from the main trunk, this will also help the plant remain vibrant and promote new growth while exposing the main trunk.
PLANTING AND CARE - Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is parallel with the ground level, this is very important, planting the tree deeper than the original top soil line may severely damage the tree. Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated upright, use the excavated soil to back fill around the root ball, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated, thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball. A 2-3 inch layer of organic hardwood mulch is strongly recommended, it will help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply the mulch over the entire planting area.
LIGHT - Select an area with FULL SUN or Partial Shade
WATER - False Agave are very drought tolerant, we suggest to utilize a soil probe initially to determine humidity levels and when to water, you can also feel the top inch on soil to the touch, if drying out go ahead and water your Agave.
