|I have had this plant for almost a year. When I bought it it was fully open, now it seems to be closing up, |
I live in San Mateo California - it gets a lot of sun and fairly mild climate.
Any thoughts I why this is happening. It is not as pretty when it is not fully open.

|Sometimes agaves will close like that because of dryness. It may need more water. However, watering them is a tricky proposition. They do not like a lot of watering. If you do choose to water, do so very sparingly. |

In my experience it is nearly always when they are too dry that Agaves do this, as SongofJoy said. So - water, but sparingly.
