5.5" Mangave Praying Hands
‘Praying Hands’ gets its unique habit from one its parents, Agave ocahui. Mangave is a relatively new phenomenon, an intergeneric cross of Manfreda x Agave. These rare hybrids combine the best of both worlds: the better growth rate and the interesting patterns of Manfreda, and the habit and refinement of Agave.
Regular watering during the growing season. Mangave can handle a bit more regular watering without being at risk of rot, especially when they are establishing roots. Apply a slow release or succulent fertilizer at the start of Summer. Any browning or damaged foliage can be pruned off near the base of the leaf. Reduce watering in the winter, more dormant season.
