Agave Applanata Cream Spike belongs to the Asparagaceae family and is also known as Agave ‘Cream Spike’. Offering a dormancy of winters, this succulent looks like a giant artichoke with wide leaves. The plant can grow up to 4 inches tall.

Growth Rate

Agave Applanata Cream Spike has a very slow growth rate and can take years to achieve full size. Especially in containers, the growth rate becomes even slower. 

Flowering

The stemless rosettes form leaves of olive green to blue-green color and as the name of the succulent suggests, its margins are cream-colored.

Watering and Feeding

Water about once a month in winter and water thoroughly from spring to fall. In the first two years, feed your cream spike with a small amount of fertilizer in the spring. 

Soil

The good news is that the cream spike can tolerate all kinds of soils as long as they have excellent drainage. However, they prefer a rocky or sandy soil mix. 

Hardiness

Agave Applanata Cream Spike can withstand temperatures as low as -9.4°C and have a hardiness zone of 8b to 10b. During their growing season, they like warm temperatures. 

Light

The plant does well in full sun and sometimes, in partial shade. Spring to fall is the ideal month for it to be exposed to as much sunlight as possible. If growing indoors, choose a sunny window. 

Propagation

Most prefer to propagate by offsets since it can take years to produce seeds. Remove offsets in either spring or summer, and sow the seeds in spring. 

This agave plant is best known as a popular succulent with large leaves that end in spiny tips.
