Though technically hardy down to 10 degrees, most agaves can't handle wet feet, so we recommend treating the Solitary Candelabrum Agave as a house plant in the Pacific NW, if only during the fall and winter. Its slow growing nature makes this agave appropriate for indoor gardening, though the rosettes may eventually reach three to four feet in height and about three feet across. Baby rosettes will often appear at the base of the original plant and can be separated into their own pots or left in place. Though slow to bloom, the Solitary Candelabrum Agave may send up a stalk of white flowers, then will die, only to be replaced by the baby rosettes. Move this specimen into the sunshine during the summer, then bring it indoors to a well-lit room when the temps drop in the fall. As tempting as this agave may appear to pets, please keep it out of their mouths, as it can cause gastric distress if ingested.
