agave leaves yellowing and curling

Asked May 1, 2018, 5:16 PM EDT

What can I do to stop my agave leaves from yellowing? Also, a number of the leaves are quite curled. The plants were indoors all winter (Bethesda) and I put them out about 2 weeks ago. I have watered them very little though it has rained a number of times.

This looks like cold injury. The plants were probably set out too early and the nighttime temperatures were still quite cold in Montgomery County recently. The only thing you can do is wait and see if they will recover as we get warmer weather now.
