Crew up potted 12 plants from 1/2gal to 1gal with bark mix.
By and large these are in good shape, with a few showing slight stress from overwatering
Provide an interesting glaucous color where they are present on the roof. Overall performing quite well with relativley little basal leaf rot.
Wasn’t receiving enough sun. Planted Rhododendron makinoi in its place. Moved to a sunnier location in N-07 at the entrance of M-04.
Continues to do quite well. Adds a very nice texture and color to the roof. More noticeable now since they are not being covered up by other plants due to the recent pruning/clean-up.
Agave ovatifolia is one of the best, if not the best, Agave that can handle being in an area that receives irrigation frequently. It’s great of a mixed border.
