Mangave Catch a Wave Physical Characteristics
Its leaves are the most distinct feature. They are thick, blue-green with a silvery hue. The leaves are quite dark due to the tremendous dark spotting on their surface. Also, it has spines on the margins, and these margins curl like sea waves which is the origin of its name.
These leaves are triangular, they have a broad base with a tapering end, and they are grooved. The leaves angle upwards at 45o, but they recurve on the edges. They form relatively dense rosettes.

Hey everyone! I’m Richard. Welcome to my blog, which is all about succulents, cacti, and a bit about air plants. Ten years back, in 2013, I began my journey with succulents. It started as a simple hobby, crafting and selling charming succulent-themed pins and decorations. But as time passed, my fascination with these remarkable plants grew, and I gained extensive knowledge about them. Therefore, Succulent City is the blog as you see it is now. Enjoy your visit and happly planting!
