This is Agave 'Cream Spike' - This large succulent is slightly smaller than the species but still grows to an impressive 5 to 6 feet tall and 6 to 8 feet wide. It has long leaves that are striated with thin yellow lines. Yellow-green flowers attract humming birds and the flowering plant dies after flowering.

This Agave is in a 5" plastic pot. All of our plants are shipped bare root (carefully wrapped with no soil and no pot). We have a care sheet to give you tips on caring for succulents - contact me for a copy.

Feel free to repot it in one of your own pots, but do not use a pot much larger than 5" diameter. If you put a succulent in a pot that is too large, the soil will take too long to dry since there are not enough roots to absorb the water and your plant may get root rot.
We charge the shipping cost only - the cost is calculated by the post office.
What is the difference between an cactus and a succulent? All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. Succulents are plants that store water in their stem, leaves or root system. A true cactus has a structure called an areole. It looks like a patch of cotton from which spines, flowers, branches and roots grow. While some succulents may have spines, they will not have areoles.
