This photo illustrates a landscaping tip for agave plants. They are adapted to the desert by having leaves that collect rain and channel the water to the base of the plant. The same design also collects leaves or other plant debris that blows by in the area.
The collection of leaves and twigs in the base of the plant can result in a disease because the leaves trap and moisture around the base of the plant.
This photo shows some leaves gathered at the base. TH solution is to use a hose on high power to try to blast out the loose plant material.
This week we are showing some more photos from my recent trip to Guatemala, featuring the market town of ChiChi and Guatemala City on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
