Potted Pals: Two 6" Agaves univittata 'Quadricolor' also known as Agave lophantha 'Quadricolor'
Two distinct colorful Agaves for your viewing pleasure! These two compact succulents make for an impressive focal point among any plant collection. They are beginner-friendly and very hardy potted plants. Handle them with care because they do have VERY SHARP THORNS!
Agaves once acclimated need to be watered occasionally. The Potted Pals team recommends you water them only when the soil is completely dry. These potted plants need partial to full sun. They do very well indoors and outdoors. Make sure to bring your houseplants inside if it gets too cold outside. These plants thrive when they are neglected, so don't worry about leaving your Pals behind when you go on vacation. These Potted Pals do so well on their own that they lead themselves. Thus, the nickname of King and Queen. Agaves grow very slowly and will take a long time before they outgrow the nursery pot.
Potted Pals Size and Look:
Your new Potted Pals sizes are based on the diameter of the nursery pot they are currently in (4", 6", or 10" inches). The potted plants themselves may be a little bigger or a little smaller than the nursery pot they are grown in, depending on how they grow and what time of the year it is.
Each Potted Pal is unique and while we do our best to ship plants as similar to those you see in the picture above, please keep in mind that all plants look slightly different. Potted Plants, even though they may have specific names, vary in color, size, and shape. That's what makes each Potted Pal special. There's beauty in imperfection :)
Our plants are watered before shipping during summer times to keep the soil and the roots moist. During the winter, we try and keep the soil as dry as possible to prevent freezing.
Our Potted Pals team works hard to make sure your potted plants leave in the best conditions and arrive safely. Shippers, however, can be a little rough with packages, and mishaps can happen. If your Potted Pals arrive damaged, reach out to us with pictures and your number order. We will make things right.
