Are you on the hunt for a unique and eye-catching plant to add to your collection? Look no further than the Mangave 'Bloodspot', also known as Bloodspot mangave, an adorable hybrid of the Mangave genus. Its striking compact rosette is a cross between an Agave macroacantha ×Manfreda maculosa. This elegant succulent has green leaves with maroon edges. Despite being monocarpic, it produces offsets before the mother plant perishes.  

This striking plant displays yellow star-shaped blooms in the summer, making it a true showstopper in any garden. With minimal water and full sun exposure requirements, this perennial is perfect for those looking for a low-maintenance addition to their garden or indoor space. However, it's important to note that this plant is extremely safe for both kids and pets. 

Hailing from Japan and reaching 24 inches tall and 24 inches wide at maturity, Mangave Bloodspot is sure to make a statement wherever it's planted.

Watering Needs 

Many succulents, such as Mangave 'Bloodspot,' thrive when cared for properly by using the "soak and dry" technique. This involves giving your plant a generous watering followed by allowing it to completely dry out before watering again.  

For potted and outdoor Mangave hybrids, during the growing season, it's recommended to give them a deep-water soak once or twice a month when the soil is dry. Use a water meter or place your finger into the soil, and if it is dry an inch down, then you should water your plant.  Make sure that you are also using porous sandy soil and make sure if it is in a pot, then make sure there is a drainage hole to avoid overwatering. In rainy seasons or cold weather, it's best to withhold watering your outdoor succulent. 

Light Requirements 

The Mangave 'Bloodspot' can withstand full sun, but it prefers to grow in areas with some partial shade. Learn to adjust your Mangave plant to avoid burns if the location where you have the plant is exposed to a lot of sunlight.   

It's critical to remember that during a heatwave or periods of extreme heat, your Mangave species could still sustain sun damage or get sunburned. You can protect the plant in this situation by moving it indoors or to a shaded area. 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

The Mangave plants like very airy, porous, nutrient-rich soil with a pH of 5.5- 6.5 as succulents require fast-draining soil that dries completely between waterings. Your soil must have a sandy texture and a low water-holding capacity, just like desert soil.  Soggy wet soil can damage your succulent and contributes to bacterial and fungal rot. In addition, because of a lack of oxygen, soggy soil substitutes air pockets with water, resulting in an anaerobic environment that can kill your plant. 

As an alternative, you can create your own potting mix by combining equal portions of perlite, coarse sand, and good natural potting soil. Ideally, you want to use our specialized potting mix that contains organic mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your succulent to thrive.   

When it comes to fertilizing your succulent, it only needs a small amount of fertilizer applied once a year in spring.  Succulents prefer a fertilizer with lower doses of NPK, with a maximum ratio of 5-10-5 that is higher in phosphorus than nitrogen. 

Hardiness Zones & More 

Typically grown in hot, arid desert regions, Bloodspot mangave succulent thrives indoors in warm, dry surroundings. If you live in USDA regions 9 to 11, you can also grow these hybrid succulents outdoors year-round, but they are not cold- or frost-tolerant (minimum 20 F), so you should plant them indoors or put them in a pot and move them indoors during the winter if you live outside of these regions.  

Keep your Mangave away from cold, drafty windows and air vents if you are growing it indoors in a cold climate.
