Can agave grow new roots?
I planted all 5 agave pups around my garden. They didn't need any soil amendments – native soil was just fine. After I planted them, I provided supplemental water to help them establish and grow roots. Early fall and spring is a good time to plant agave so they have time to grow roots before the heat of summer arrives.
How do you remove a pup from agave?
How do you transplant large agave attenuata?
The easiest thing to do is to dig it up and replant it right away in its new location — but that probably isn't an option for you. If you can dig around it and get it out of the ground with the roots still in a ball of dirt, you can wrap burlap around it like they do trees.
How long can you keep a bare root trees before planting?
You can delay planting for up to two or three weeks if you are able to keep the roots from drying out. However, in cases where the delayed period is longer than a week, you should consider applying additional damp paper to bare-root tree roots to provide sufficient enough moisture for longer storage.
