Dried her out under the grow lights and she's greened back up and feeling much better. #agavevictoriaereginae #agavevictoriae-reginae #agave-victoriareginae #queenvictoriaagave #queenvictoria #queenvictoriacenturyplant #centuryplant 13 June 2020

Vicky is not doing well. I put her outside for some sun and in hopes that she'll green back up a bit, but she isn't looking very pleased. Too much rain lately perhaps. 11 June 2020 #agavevictoriaereginae #agave #agavevictoriae-reginae #agave-victoriareginae #queenvictoriaagave #queenvictoriacenturyplant #queenvictoria #centuryplant #getwellsoon

1 Dec 2019 she's grown 4-5 new leaves since last year. My baby is growing up... (sniff) #queenvictoria #queenvictoriacenturyplant #queenvictoriaagave #agave-victoriareginae #agavevictoriaereginae #agavevictoriae-reginae

@Christiani.blooms true. I was legit afraid of my grandmother's spiky aloe when I was 5.

I understand completely, I had to have a little trip to the Drs to get one of the spikes removed from my finger😢. @Christiani.blooms . Beautiful plant Ruth. How old is this one?

comment
sushiwaitress

@kylers I don't know exactly how old it is. I bought it on eBay last July, so I haven't even had it a year yet. I think it was about 4 years old when I got it, so now it's between 4 and 5. Ish.

The markings on it are lovely, I like how the white markings are slightly raised. Great looking specimen plant😍💚

Same here. Love the white markings but until the little one’s firmer on her feet, this is a def no-no for me for now.

Stabbed my hand -- and broke the spike off the tip of this leaf (which I'm much more disappointed about). ☹ #agavevictoriae-reginae #agavevictoriaereginae #queenvictoriaagave #queenvictoriacenturyplant #queenvictoria 29 Jan 2019

Just found a new baby leaf on my #agavevictoriae-reginae #agavevictoriaereginae #queenvictoriaagave #queenvictoriacenturyplant #queenvictoria -- this is leaf number 4 that she's grown since she came to live with me. It'll be a while yet until this leaf unfolds, but it's soooooo rewarding to see that she's growing (and recovering from the sunburn I gave her). 29 Jan 2019

Another leaf is separating from the central core -- that's two new leaves that have opened since I got this plant. I'm told agaves are summer growers, but it's been pretty active this fall. 3 Dec 2018 #agave #agavevictoriae-reginae #agavevictoriaereginae #agave-victoriareginae #queenvictoria #queenvictoriacenturyplant #queenvictoriaagave #windowsill #apartmentgarden #grittymix

The leaf pointing down to the bottom left was very recently folded up tight with the three leaves in the center. And now I see a new tiny third leaf tucked in there in the middle. #newgrowth #agave #agavevictoriae-reginae #agavevictoriaereginae #agave-victoriareginae #queenvictoria #queenvictoriacenturyplant #queenvictoriaagave 19 Nov 2018

One of the leaves in the tightly packed group of three in the center of the plant has unfolded since the last time I was paying attention to it. I gave it a deep soak last weekend -- coincidence? #agavevictoriae-reginae #agavevictoriaereginae #agave-victoriareginae #queenvictoria #queenvictoriacenturyplant #queenvictoriaagave

#agavevictoriaereginae #agavevictoriae-reginae #agave-victoriareginae #queenvictoriaagave #queenvictoria #queenvictoriacenturyplant #agave She's in a 4-inch pot, and I give her a deep soak every couple weeks. Lower leaves got sunburned and they're shriveling. I won't peel them off next time. 22 Sep 2018

Here she is, back in her pot. Coffee mug for scale. Has anyone else had success keeping a #queenvictoriaagave in a pot indoors? I have a balcony I could put her on outside. It gets direct sun in the afternoon. But she got sunburn on her lower leaves just from being on the #windowsill so I'm hoping an air-conditioned life will be good for her. #agave-victoriareginae #agavevictoriae-reginae #agavevictoriaereginae #queenvictoriacenturyplant

New #rootgrowth on my #agavevictoriae-reginae -- glad to know you're doing ok and not rotting AT ALL. So sorry to have disturbed Your Majesty but an exam "down below" is necessary once in a while to maintain health. #agave-victoriareginae #agavevictoriaereginae #roots #queenvictoriaagave #queenvictoriacenturyplant 23 Aug 2018

I took Queen Vicky out of her pot to take a look at the roots, and GOOD NEWS -- no root rot! Even some new growth! I'd had her in an upstairs window (which has light all day), but I spend most of my time downstairs, so I brought her downstairs into the kitchen where I can see her all the time, but the kitchen has an awning and doesn't get such direct light as upstairs does. I think she needs the additional light after all, so back into her pot and back upstairs she goes. I promise I'll visit.

Oh no! Is this bad? The bottom leaves of my #agavevictoriae-reginae are deflating and turning brown. Does this look normal? Is this a sign of root rot? I'd love some #agave-advice #help

WISH. LIST. NO. MORE!!!!! I can't believe this beauty is mine! This lady is native to Mexico, so I'll have to come up with an appropriately regal Latin name.
