No, dont worry..I was just whinging about my experience, as I've lost a couple recently. Including one of Stuart's seedlings.. :curses: I've now gone down the no soil route as I have my Agavoides collection outside.

Re: Help with a dying Wax Agave Solved

Looks good, how I wish there was cure for over watering them. :roll: :roll

With time I'm sure you'll get some good stem growth.

Re: A recent purchase has got me thinking

Well I have gone down the soiless mix root and want to believe that this would do the trick.
It didn't help that a most a months worth of rain fell in two days, but it's all experience and a education.

Do hate losing plants though :evil:

Re: A recent purchase has got me thinking

Perhaps my mix required less soil as my agavoides are outside, as I'm one of those few that like t...

A recent purchase has got me thinking

I had some bad luck with a plant rotting off in a pot outside, and recently bought another Agavoides to add to my collection.
