    • Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Spider agave belongs to the Asparagaceae family, best known for the common garden asparagus. As with many other types of agave plants, it’s a perennial. With proper care, it may last for many years and eventually produce a short inflorescence spike covered in small yellow or white flowers.
    • Bracteosa agave is a slow-growing plant but may eventually reach 2’ – 3’ feet tall. The rosette typically contains about 20 succulent leaves.
    • As the plant grows taller, the green leaves start to curl inward, resembling the octopus agave – Agave vilmoriniana.
    • Spider agave is a perennial taking many years to mature and may eventually produce a single bloom. After the plant matures, it typically sends up a 3’ – 5’ foot tall spike producing a cluster of white or yellow flowers. Instead of covering the entire inflorescence with blooms, the flowers cluster around the top third of the spike.
    • Spider bracteosa is native to the dry, arid mountain ranges in Mexico and can survive relatively cool temperatures. It’s winter hardy in USDA hardiness zone 8a to 11b. In the winter, it goes dormant but survives temperatures between 10° – 50° degrees Fahrenheit (-12° – 10° C).

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
