Agave applanata Cream Spike is the dwarf, small growing, variegated form of Agave applanata. It is highly dimorphic, with a low-growing, almost flat juvenile form, before making a rounded rosette with very stiff more erect leaves as it ages.

Growth rate: The growth rate is quite slow, especially when grown as a miniature in a container, and it will take many years to achieve full size.
Soil: Grow it in porous soil with adequate drainage.
Exposure: It do well in full sun or a lightly shaded area, but prefers some shade in hot climates.
Moisture: Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. In winter watering this plant can be done once every 1-2 months, there is no need to mist the leaves. Warning too much water can cause leaves to rot.
Pests and diseases: No serious insect or disease problems.
