Mangave 'Man of Steel': A neat plant of long, slender leaves that shade from silver to purple. The leaves are outlines with cinnamon orange teeth, but the leaves are fairly flexible and easy to handle. A natural coating of epicuticular wax protects the plant in bright sun and gives it a soft, silvery appearance. Increased sun exposure can bring out the purple tones and a smattering of small, purple dots. At maturity, it reaches about 11.0" tall and 21.0" wide. This cultivar is a hybrid of Agave striata x Mangave 'Bloodspot'. This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5" round, plastic container.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.
