Mangave 'Lavender Lady' is a charming evergreen succulent plant that grows quickly and forms a single, compact, mounded rosette. It can grow up to 12 inches tall by 20 inches wide and hold as many flattened fleshy leaves that have purple-lavender spots when emerging are simply stunning. At maturity, this plant produces a thick spike that arches over and bears hundreds of yellow flowers that are sure to add a pop of color to your space. 

With its solitary rosette habit and smoky purple coloration, the Mangave 'Lavender Lady' resembles an Echeveria more than any other plant.

 

Watering Needs 

Watering your Mangave 'Lavender Lady' is important, especially during its first season in a new planting container. These succulents need moderate irrigation to keep the soil moist, but not too wet. Make sure you check the soil before watering, as these plants do not like to be waterlogged or soggy.  

Usually, watering once every two or three weeks is ample during the summer. In the winter, if it doesn't rain you still should only water your Mangave hybrid at least once a month. If the plant doesn't receive enough moisture for an extended period of time, discoloration, pale stems, and browning can occur leading to stunted growth. In contrast, overwatering can cause root rot and fungal infection. 

  

Light Requirements 

Like most succulents, the lavender plants love lots of light. It is a type of succulent plant that requires bright, direct sunlight to thrive. When grown as a houseplant, it should be placed in the sunniest spot in your home in order to receive the six to eight hours of direct sunlight that it needs each day. This usually means placing the succulent in a south or west-facing window or using a grow light to provide supplemental light.  

When grown outdoors, ensure that the Mangave plant is not planted in a shady location.  

 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizers Needs 

Mangave plant favors very airy, sandy soil that drains well. Planting them in ordinary soil will result in compacted roots, stunted growth, and most likely root rot. Instead, make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally use our specialized potting mix that contains over 10 natural substrates and mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your succulent to thrive. 

When it comes to fertilizers! Organic or 100% natural fertilizers are the best choice as they last longer and keep your soil alive by adding other beneficial compounds and microbes that encourage plant health and nutrient absorption. So, skip those harsh chemicals and give your succulent some love with a good natural fertilizer! 

Very rarely feed your plant, and when you do, make sure you use a small amount of fertilizer. Experts agree that succulents should be fertilized once a year in the spring.   

A little goes a long way! 

  

Hardiness Zones & More 

This is the least hardy of the Mangave hybrids and should be protected from a hard frost. The ability to grow Mangave plants outdoors in the USDA hardiness zones 9 - 11 is still up for debate with regard to temperature and humidity tolerance. But it can thrive as well in zone 8. The hardest temperature is 60°F (if grown outdoors), though some succulents plant can tolerate 25°F for a short period.  

Like most succulents, it doesn't thrive in conditions with very high humidity, because the leaves are known to store water. By providing your hybrid plant with the proper conditions, you'll have a beautiful and unique plant that will thrive for years to come. 

Mangave are fantastic plants for adding interest and excitement to the garden, and 'Lavender Lady' is no exception - with her gorgeous purple leaves that are sure to stand out!
