Leaves are succulent, grayish green and up to 1.8 feet (55 cm) long, ending in sharp black spines that are up to 1.2 inches (3 cm) long at the tips. Flowers are small, grey and red, growing in bunches on sturdy stems of up to 10 feet (3 m) in height.
How to Grow and Care
Agave is not a difficult plant to grow. They’re slow-growing and dramatic and will even thrive on a bit of neglect. If you’re the type of person who likes to fuss with houseplants and water a lot, Agave is probably not the plant for you. If, however, you’re the type of person who likes to set it and forget it, and you have a sunny window, Agave might the way to go. Be aware that some of the large varieties will eventually outgrow your room (unless you have a large greenhouse), and Agave can be aggressive. They have irritating sap and sometimes very sharp thorns that can cause injuries to small children and even pets.
