How to care for: Mangave
The 'Mangave' is a mix between the Agave and Manfreda. They belong to succulents, which makes the Mangave easy plants. They are available in different species, sizes and colours. These characteristics make a Mangave plant a real eye-catcher. For indoors as well as outdoors.
Water once a month
How do you take care of a Mangave?
The Mangave likes to be in a location with a lot of light. It is best to place it in a spot with direct sunlight or indirect sunlight.
A Mangave needs water at least once every 6 weeks. In the summer, the plant may be watered once a month. Do make sure that the water can drain off well. Otherwise, water will remain at the bottom of the flower pot and the Mangave could suffer from root rot.
The Mangave doesn't consume a lot of energy. Supplementing the Mangave with plant nutrition is therefore certainly not necessary. Should you wish to give plant nutrition, then only do so during the growing season (spring to summer).
We advise to repot the Mangave once every 3 years, and when the pot becomes too small. Repotting the Mangave gives the plant new nutrients and more space for root growth. The new airy potting soil is also very helpful for watering. The best period for repotting is spring.
The Mangave is not known for its air-purifying function. As far as we are concerned, no problem.
Is a Mangave toxic?
They are not poisonous to humans or pets, making them perfect houseplants.
