Pollinating Native Plants (Agave)

New Member Here so bare with me...

I have some an Agave plant and there seems to be another one growing underneath the big one which is about 2 years old. There is also another one growing about 1 foot away from the big one.

My quesiton is:

What do I do with the new plants? Do I move them into a pot until they are big enough to be planted or do I just leave them where they are.

I don't want the one growing under the big one to mess up any of the stems.

thanks,

BG

Hi, with succulants you just divide them up and plant the young ones in different areas. Not hard at all.


Have fun with your plants!

Hey Austin!!

I agree with Opa. That's exactly what I've done and am getting ready to do again with mine.

here is the new guy planted away from his mother...

I think it looks great there in the corner. It is a bit thin and irregular shaped but I think it is going to fill out quickly.

thanks for the help!
