Try adding sand or coarse grit to the planting hole to help drainage. If pot planting we recommend you use a good quality soil based compost mixed with course grit and stand the pot on feet to help drainage. 

If growing on a busy patio - or near a walkway, the 'dagger' sharp points of the leaves can be clipped with shears. Sounds horrific, but may be necessary for safety when mature. Spanish Dagger is the type of plant that needs its own space where it can show off.
