In this regard, what is wrong with my agave plant?
Infection. Several infections can also plague agave plants with symptoms including lesions, black and brown spots and rot. Agave infections include Anthracnose, root and crown rot and Phyllosticta pad spot. These infections are caused by fungus spores that find a home on the agave plants.
Also, why do agave leaves droop? Both watering improperly and grubs feeding on the roots might cause the leaves to droop. When leaves droop in fall, it is most likely signaling an irrigation or a water drainage problem. Agaves, when they are watered, like to be given plenty of water and then no water for a long time.
Also, how often do you water an agave plant?
Give the plant a week or so to readjust, before you water it again. Water about once a week in the summer and monthly in the winter. Wait until the surface of the soil is dry, before watering. In extremely dry conditions your agave may need more frequent water, but agaves are very forgiving.
How do you revive a dying agave?
An agave plant usually recovers from external freeze damage when freezing temperatures only last a few hours. To avoid that move the agave near the house or in a patio area that receives warmth from the house. Carefully remove the agave plant from the soil using a garden shovel.
