Twin Flowered and Pin Cushion are some of the many names given to Agave Geminiflora that can grow up to 3 to 4 feet in height. Belonging to the Agavaceae family, the succulent has a unique rounded starburst shape. Agave Geminiflora is native to Nayarit, a Mexican state with rare plant growth and goes dormant in winters.

Growth Rate

This extremely slow-growing plant has a growth rate of 1 to 2 inches a year. You can also choose to cut off its flowering stalk and keep it at a smaller size forever.

Flowering

The agave geminiflora flowers bloom in the summer season. The yellow-colored flowers have the reddish or purple-bluish lining on the edges. 

Watering and Feeding

Create a medium watering schedule during the summer season. Agave Geminiflora does not need watering during the autumn, spring and winter time. Feed the plant with a slow-release fertiliser during the early weeks of spring.

Soil

Do not go beyond the pH level of 6 for an ideal soil structure. Ensure that the soil mix is gritty so that it does not cause waterlogging.

Hardiness

The succulent has extraordinary heat tolerance. However, keep them away from severe freezing temperatures. The twin flowering agave has a frost tolerance of -3° C and a hardiness zone of 9 to 11.

Light

Place the plant in partial shade. Expose the succulent to bright light for about 4 hours every day for the plants to grow in a dense green color.

Propagation

While seeding is the most common way for propagation, seeds take way too much time to germinate. Use offshoots that fall from the succulent and grow them right beneath it.

You will be happy to know that this succulent lives up to its genus name which is borrowed from a Greek phrase that means both admirable and noble!
