The undulating leaves of Catch a Wave will bring a sense of movement to any patio or deck. Art and Sol™ Mangave features intense and unusual coloring, while being easy to grow, perfect for the beginner or advanced gardener. The icy blue and green colors of Catch a Wave look fabulous in container garden groupings or in a rock garden with other interesting succulents. 

Mangave is mostly pest- and disease-free, deer resistant, and drought tolerant. Its leaf edges are far less spiky than either of its parents, Manfreda and Agave, making this beauty easy to handle and transplant. Art and Sol™ Mangaves are hardy in USDA zones 9-11 and perform beautifully in rock gardens, sloping sites, and foundation plantings in dry sunny locations. These versatile plants also perform well as potted plants grown indoors over the fall and winter. 

Art & Sol™ Catch a Wave Mangave Care

Provide full sun exposure and plenty of drainage for a happy and healthy Mangave. Unlike other succulents, Mangave is much more tolerant of occasional overwatering as long as the soil continues to drain well. Allow the top 2-3 inches of potting mix or garden soil to dry between waterings. Feed Mangave regularly with a diluted liquid fertilizer made for succulent plants during the summer. During the fall and winter, these tender perennials require far less watering and no fertilizing.

Pruning is not needed for Mangaves, nor deadheading or pinching back. The only upkeep is the removal of older leaves as they die off around the outside of the plant. Typically this happens in the winter when the plant is indoors. 

Bring Mangave indoors before the nighttime temperatures fall to 50 degrees F (10 C) and place it in a spot with direct sun exposure. South and southwest-facing windows are ideal. If you do not have a bright enough spot, use dedicated grow lights indoors. 

Art & Sol™ Catch a Wave Mangave Spacing

The compact size of Catch a Wave is perfect for growing in pots. Choose a pot with plenty of bottom drainage and a diameter 2-3 inches larger than the root ball. If the pot is too large, the excess soil around the roots can cause problems over time. Regularly repot Mangave until it reaches its full size of 8 inches tall and 18-20 inches wide. In the landscape, space mangaves 18 inches from other plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
