Watering and Feeding
This plant needs plenty of water to thrive and prosper. Feed the century plant during its growing season with a balanced fertilizer at half strength once a month.

Soil
Sandy soil with a good drainage system is ideal for Agave xylonacantha Swordfish. Since they are used to surviving in desert climates, they are highly drought tolerant.

Light
Provide full and ample sunlight to your succulent. While younger plants adjust well in partial shade, matured ones can be exposed to increased hours of sunlight.

You can choose between seeds or suckers for propagation. Remove the basal suckers in spring or summer and let the cutting dry for a few days. Once dried, insert in compost.

Saw Leaf Agaves are considered to be plants that are guaranteed to make an eye-catching statement. Their best use is to add some color to your garden or house for a change of scenery.
